Title

Task Tracking (Activity)

Overview

This POGIL activity explores ways to track tasks for a project with many people, and tasks that vary in importance, time, and skill required, and that may depend on each other. The activity focuses less on events that must occur at specific times (e.g. classes, meetings) and more on tasks that can be scheduled with some flexibility. Once you understand concepts, it is easier to learn about specific tools in the future.

Prerequisites
  • Some experience with software development.
  • Some knowledge of development activities & categories (analyze, design, code, test).

  • Describe the importance of & issues in tracking & managing tasks.
