Charles Phillips, former teacher of Durham, NC, recently made his Grade Point Average Predictor spreadsheet available for free to anyone. By using the GPA Predictor, students can know precisely what impact their next grades will have on their cumulative GPA before it's too late to do something about it. According to Phillips, his spreadsheet could make the difference in whether a student achieves the level of academic success that the student desires.
The GPA Predictor is more than a GPA calculator. It's an analytical tool that allows anyone with access to a student's past grades to know immediately what a student's current semester's GPA must be for that student to maintain a target overall GPA. Also, for many students, its primary use could be to predict what their current semester's GPA must be for them to restore their overall GPA to a desired level. Phillips says that since he knows firsthand how using this spreadsheet has contributed to his children's academic success, it could be very useful for many other students as well.
According to Phillips, one of the unexpected benefits of having the GPA Predictor available for his children was the way it helped them focus on their goals. Since the GPA Predictor calculates a numerical target GPA for each semester, it gave them a measurable goal that helped them to focus more effectively. They were not restricted to general and sometimes vague motivations like "do the best that you can."
In addition to knowing what their semester GPA should be, they could also strategically focus on their performance in each individual class. By using the GPA Predictor, his children always knew exactly what they needed to do. It also helped reduce their stress level by eliminating a lot of the pressure that students often feel when they're not sure if their focus is where it should be.
All students have a target GPA that's needed to accomplish their academic goals, whether they're "magna cum laude" or "thank you laude" achievers. The GPA Predictor will help them know exactly what GPA they need each semester to stay on track.
