Procedures for importing test files and loading state standard test data.
California Educator Reporting System (CERS) and Aeries System Integration - we are working with CDE, other vendors and several pilot districts to create an automated process for creating student groups for educators in the CERS system. In the first production phase we will provide a page in Aeries to quickly select the type of group, staff and students (based on class or course information) to create the CERS Student Groups file. This file can then be manually uploaded into CERS. In the second production phase we will create a scheduled process to upload refreshed CERS Student Group files on a daily or weekly basis through an API.
CAASPP Paperless Reporting - over the past year Aeries has worked with ETS, other vendors and several pilot districts in integrating electronic CAASPP Student Score Reports, ELPAC Score Reports CAST Score Reports and CSA Score Reports into Aeries. ETS has opened the Electronic Reporting production environment for all districts. It contains three years of historical records. Local educational agencies can now log into the Test Operations Management System, generate their new electronic reporting credential, and enter their credential into Aeries to allow access to student score reports. Once the Electronic Score Report credentials generated in TOMS are added into Aeries and security to the State Electronic Test Scores is set up, the Parents and Students will be able to access their student's most recent few years' CAASPP, ELPAC, CAST and CSA Student Score Reports through the Aeries Parent Portal. This information will be retrieved behind the scenes from ETS on the fly. Office staff are also able to access and download the Student Score Reports.
