Students want to be able to make the most informed decisions possible when choosing classes so they can get the most out of their education. We both are constantly asking upperclassmen friends who are the best professors, what their grading is like, and the best courses to take. Not everyone has that opportunity, so we are leveling the playing field. Our application consists of a Chrome extension which runs on PennInTouch and can be used to send your grades to our database. Once your grades have been sent, you are able to see visualizations of all the data we have collected so far. This is completely anonymous, tied only to a username, so students don't have to worry about their privacy. Key features: visualizations for your personal performance, professor grade distributions, and average distributions for a specific course. There is still so much potential now that we have the data to power informed decisions.
--edit-- I temporarily took down the video demo because all my grades are on there... it was a necessary evil for the hackathon. If you'd like to see a demo, please contact me / comment!
