You probably know about the Rate My Professors website, but what about Koofers, Blinkness, or MyEdu?
These are students’ planning tools, for good and for ill. Rose-Helen Graham, a student at UNC-Chapel Hill, explains them here. For example:
- Blinkness lists which courses at a specific school have the most A’s
- Koofers not only gives a course’s grade distribution;, but describes how many and how hard the exams are; what the homework is; and whether or not the professor grades on a curve
- MyEdu lets you generate your semester schedule and then tells you what your GPA is likely to be.
