Pre-IDs and Importing Tests are functions that were only available in Aeries® Client, but as new state file layouts are introduced functionality is being added to the Aeries Web Version.  At this time Aeries Client Version will still address imports for older testing layouts, while Aeries Web Version supports the import of the CAASPP Student Results, CAASPP Interim Assessment, ELPAC, Initial ELPAC and several college entrance tests. The Physical Fitness student test results will be added to the Import Test Results screen. 

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 into Aeries. ETS has announced that the Electronic Reporting production environment will be available near mid February 2019 and will contain three years of historical records. Once the production environment is open local educational agencies can 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 and ELPAC Student Score Reports through the Aeries Parent Portal. This information will be retrieved behind the scenes from ETS on the fly. Office staff will also be able to access and download CAASPP and ELPAC Student Score Reports.
