Assignment Calendar Calculator can improve student research paper skills

Students can use our Assignment Calendar Calculator to improve their research paper skills. Grasselli Library and Breen Learning Center has teamed up with The JCU Writing Center and launched this online tool. Students can select a subject area and due date and the tool will calculate a timeline for the research paper including selecting and focusing a project, creating a research strategy, finding and reviewing information sources and writing drafts and the final paper. Each step has links to online help and suggestions.

If they choose to login (using the campus network ID and password), they can save the timeline and even have the tool email them the day before each step is scheduled for completion. Paper Procrastination will be a thing of the past! Take our new tool for a test drive and suggest it to your students who need some help organizing and completing their research papers. Try out the Assignment Calendar Calculator here.
