The Student Groups form will allow you to create groups of students for use throughout Aeries. These groups can then be used to limit your view of students to just those within the group for use when running reports and on various forms. A Student Group can also be shared with one or more teachers, allowing that teacher to have visibility of those students they wouldn’t normally have access to. Student Groups can either be a static List of students, or they can be a Dynamic Analytics Group and the group will dynamically update the list of students to match data in Aeries Analytics. With Aeries Communications, selecting the Communications View option will automatically create the group in Aeries Communications. Note: to use Student Groups with Aeries Communications, permissions to Student Groups needs to be granted on the API Security Page for that particular vendor.
Each student group must be associated with a single school, and that school will only have visibility to their own groups, however all groups will be accessible to users at the District level. Teachers will only be able to view and have access to Student Groups that they are associated with by their Staff ID.
The Student Groups form can be found in the School Info section of the Navigation Tree. From the Pages navigation tree, search for Student Groups.
It is available in both School and District. The form is available to Administrator type of accounts and User type of accounts.
