What To Expect - Aeries Road Map:
We are excited with all the advancements made to Aeries this last year and are even more excited about upcoming changes we have in the works. Here is a quick list of changes to look out for in the coming months.
New Look to Aeries: We are designing the Aeries.net environment to make the navigation more adaptive to different screen sizes and more expandable to include new features.
Records Transfer: K12-K12 Student Records Transfer is being developed to exchange student information electronically between Aeries districts when students transfer.
Dashboards: Besides enhancements to the current Discipline and LCAP Dashboards, we are working on new dashboards for Attendance, Interventions, and student-specific dashboards.
Google Classroom: Google has finally released an API for Google Classroom (currently in beta) and we are working to interface with it. This should make the creation and maintenance of Google Classrooms easier for teachers.
CASEMIS Import: With this new feature you will be able to configure Aeries to process standard CASEMIS files nightly and import the information into your Aeries system. It can even pull the files down from an FTP server.
Secondary Mastery-Based Grading: An entire engine to drive what is commonly referred to as "Master-Based Grading" is in the works. This will allow secondary teachers to use standards-based, rubric/performance grading and have an overall grade calculated for the class based on the student's mastery of standards.
Career Pathways: We have been working with ROPs, Counties, and other consortia to identify a new set of features for tracking, managing, and reporting Career Pathway information (AKA CTE/ROP).
More State Standards: NGSS, ELD and Spanish Common Core are all coming to Aeries.
Aeries.net Custom Reports: The Custom Report Builder in Aeries.net is getting an overhaul. The changes will be highlighted at the upcoming Sacramento Aeries Users' Conference.
Load Grades from Gradebook: Soon, office staff will be able to use the Load from Gradebook feature when using the Grades by Teacher page in Aeries.net. This will help office staff assist teachers who need some extra assistance.
Standards Based Setup in Aeries.net: A new WYSIWG editor is in the works to make designing and building standards based report cards easy and straight forward.
