Order Instructions/Description

Design a project to allow a student to access current grades and/or create a “What-if” situation on a continuing basis to understand where they are at any given point in the semester.  You will need to calculate multiple grades for exams, quizzes and assignments.  Single grades will be calculated for attendance and this final semester project.  The “Required List” will constitute 80 % of this project grade.  Optional added features are to be added to the project allowing a grade of 100 % or better.

Required List:
1. Record grades with the following attributes:
a. First name, middle initial and last name
b. SS # (can be fabricated)

b. 2 Exams        30 %
c. Semester Project    25 %
