Yes, the plugin will work for what you have in mind. I created something similar for the teachers in our language resource center to record their student advising sessions. There is a checkbox list for the main topics discussed, a text area for details of the discussion, radio boxes for male/female, pull downs for year in school, the number of sessions and which department they are in. There are text boxes for surname, given name and student number. The dataform is set up automatically include the instructors name, the date the entry was created or modified. You can set up different views (even though mine don't seem to be working 100% correctly at the moment) to present your data in different formats.
What I created uses just a small part of the power of this plugin. It can take a while to get all the parts figured out, but it is worth the time and energy
