Should You Skip Class? New Calculator Tells You If It's Worth It

The Washington Post points us to a great new tool for students -- a calculator that assesses the risk of skipping class.

Called "The Should I Skip Class Today?" calculator, the tool takes into account how often you have the class, the length of your term, quiz frequency, your current grade and more. (The Post's Jenna Johnson went undercover and tried it out -- see what it told her to do here.)

The site was created by recent college grad Jim Filbert and beta tested by students across the country.

What do you think? Is this tool legit? Will you use it? Let us know below.
