Online-Stopwatch Review

I wasn’t sure if I was going to review this site at first because it seems so basic.  I just love the concept so much I had to.  As someone who always took until the very last minute on their test this would have been an incredibly useful tool.  The main purpose of this website is to be used either as a stopwatch or countdown although they have a number of clock related options.  The feature I was most excited about was the countdown, which could be projected on the screen during timed tests or assignments so students knew how long they had left.  In my experience teachers would generally make an announcement letting students know they have about fifteen minutes left to finish what they are working on. The countdown feature would allow students to keep track of remaining time throughout their work as is convenient for them, and it gets rid of the distraction provided by the announcement.
