This practical analysis workshop will demonstrate how to use AERIES data to assist teachers and administrators to track student achievement.  It will include how to use AERIES reports and query functions to improve student achievement.  This will go beyond "how to print reports" to answer the question "What is the data telling us?"


More in depth documentation for Aeries Analytics can be found in the  Aeries Analytics Data Analysis articles.
