Our project is a comprehensive website made to help students achieve high school success. Personal quizzes are included to inform users of what type of learner and student they are. Once they are informed, they can go to the sections of our website that has a compiled list of recommended resources by topic and learning style. There is also a guide to SAT prep based on preference of material: reading vs. video. Lastly, our website includes a scholarship page for students who need help starting their scholarship search.
As high school students, we understand the struggles of trying to find reliable resources to use while researching for a project or just for studying. When we type something in the search bar, hundreds of thousands of results pop up; where do we start? We understand that it can be frustrating to click open multiple websites, trying to find the solution, only to find that nothing helps. The Internet is a great source of information for nearly everything; however, the abundance of information can be overwhelming if you don’t know what you are specifically looking for. Much time can be wasted while checking to see if a website has the content that you need and can understand. Our website takes care of that for you.
After discussing our own struggles, we came up with the idea of a school-based website to help minimize the amount of time a student could be wasting while trying to find the right resource.
During the creation of our website, each of us worked on different sections, and afterwards, we combined our individual parts. Whenever any one of us was struggling, the others were there to help out and find a solution. We were able to complete our original design and even add a few features, like a Scholarship page, because of everyone’s hard work.
It was difficult to code the quizzes to accurately analyze user input, but with the help of our classmates' example code, we were able to overcome the difficulty.
