Keeping with the recent trend of enhancements to Aeries in support of modern grading concepts and Common Core readiness, Eagle Software just released changes to Aeries.net that allow for Standards-Based Grade Reporting in Secondary Schools. This innovative feature allows schools to define which standards (either local or common core) are linked to a course and then identify which of those standards should display on the report card. Secondary Teachers can link their assignments to one of more standards and give either a traditional or rubric grade for each assignment and standard.
Documentation is available on the Online Help or our website. Scheduled for release by the end of September is the actual Secondary Standards-Based Report Card.
Eagle Software is working with early adopters of this long awaited feature to provide feedback on the need for additional features. Be on the lookout for this feature to grow even more in the next few months!
