The Grade Reporting forms and reports can be accessed through the Grade Reporting node in the navigation tree in Aeries.
The Secondary Grades Dashboard is a new page that will help guide users through the grading process for secondary schools. All of the Grade Reporting forms and reports are organized by category in order of when each process is usually run. Clicking on the category buttons will open the list of forms or reports that can be accessed from that category. Alternatively, clicking on the + sign next to the heading will open up all of the categories at once. Clicking on a form or report will jump to that page.
The Standards Based Grade Reporting for Secondary Schools is a feature available only in Aeries Web Version that allows schools to define which standards are linked to a course and then identify which of those standards should display on the report card. During the grade reporting period teachers can enter grades for each standard as well as an overall grade for the course.
NOTE: Standards Based Grade Reporting is integrated into the current secondary Grade Reporting system. If Secondary Standards Based Grading is going to be used, then both the current Grade Reporting system and the Secondary Standards Based Grade Reporting will need to be set up.
Grade Reporting Setup
An important aspect of Grade Reporting is verifying the options have been setup correctly in School Options. The School Options page is under School Info on the navigation tree. Terms MUST be set up for the current school year with the Starting and Ending dates being valid school days as reflected in the School Calendar. For the Grade Reporting option, schools can have multiple marks which can be up to twelve marks for each student and can print out report cards during the year with the previous grades in each subject.
Multiple Marks indicates one grade will be stored in the grade table for more than one reporting period, utilizing the M1–M12 fields.
The Courses must also be verified to ensure the correct information prints on the Report Cards, such as, the Course Title, Academic Courses for GPA calculation, include T/A etc. Course titles can be translated into another language in the Correspondence Language tab. The Courses page is under the Scheduling Process on the navigation tree.
The Master Schedule contains credit information utilized in the Grading and History programs. Verify that the Credit field contains the correct credit for the course displayed. The Exclude field can be utilized so that the course displayed does not show on any of the Grade Reports.
