  1. Allow teachers to see the student side of Aeries

    We should be able to make a dummy account or be able to click "view as student" or "view as parent" to see how it would look to them. I often get questions from parents or students about where to find things, and I am just as puzzled as they are.

  2. Grade Statistics for all classes for an assignment

    Run a grade statistics report (average score, hi, low...) for an assignment that spans all linked gradebooks. For example, if I have a test I would like to see what the average is for ALL my sections, not just one class.

  3. Report that counts the number of assignments that apply to each standard

    When pushing an elementary gradebook to grade reporting, it would be nice to know the number of assignments that counted for a specific grade. The goal is to balance assignments among the standards

  4. I'd like a shorter version (than 2 pages!) of missing assignments & grade analysis

    I want to used less paper. I want to be able to print multiple students missing assignments & the grade analysis on a sheet of paper without printing out 2 papers for each students. Many students have only a single missing assignment

  5. Have an "undo" option similar to what was in GradeQuick

    Have the option to reverse or undo the last five steps or changes made to a gradebook. For example if you accidentally overwrite a previously entered grade in the gradebook, then you have the option of undoing that mistake. Especially helpful if you are transferring grades from another source like a written gradebook.

  6. Incorporate graphical summaries of scores

    Be able to view the distribution of scores on a selected assignment by a histogram in the case of numerical scores, or a pie chart or bar graph for letter grades. For the histogram, make the class width editable by the user.

  7. Having assignment types within a category when using a weighted grade scale.

    it would be great if we could have assignment types within a category so that tests can still be 30% of the grade, but still be able to break it down by audio, vocabulary, grammar, reading & comprehension.

  8. Adding a "mass assign value" or "default score" button to the window where you create an assignment.

    Adding a "mass assign value" or "default score" option to the window where you create an assignment would eliminate having to go back and enter scores once the assignment is created.

  9. Add a place for students/parents to access non-assignments specific documents

    A spot that will always be visible to students and parents that documents can be uploaded to (a sidebar or briefcase for them). For example I would upload my syllabus there as well as graph paper and a few other handouts that I would want them to be able to download whenever. Now I must attach them to an assignment.

  11. Autosave grading scales/percentages for use each new grading period

    Each grading term on Aeries, you have to type in your grading scales/ranges for an A, A-, B+, etc. It's a real pain in the ... fingers. It would be awesome if Aeries can set up an option in which you can save them forever and then just import them each time you create a new gradebook for a class. That's what's offered on Making the Grade, and I'm sure several other gradebook programs that are now extinct or becoming extinct because of Aeries.

  12. Allow importing of grades

    In Making the Grade, you can import as many assignments as you want by clicking on them when you open a certain gradebook. In Aeries, I would like to be able to, like go to Period 5 class, and then click on "Import" and find the class I would like to import my assignments from.
    Right now, I have to go go the period that has the assignment, click the import tab and then find the assignment and click on it; then click on which classes I'd like to add that assignment to.

  16. When running a report, allow an option for using color for missing assignments

    The reports are only in black and white. Allow the option to have the missing assignments highlighted red when you print them out. This is so that the students can easily find their missing assignments on a report.

  18. Create an option for standards based grading using Marzano's Power Law

    What is the Power Law Formula for standards-based grading?

    An internet search for “Power Law Formula” results in hundreds of listings in a wide variety of fields including astronomy, meteorology, and engineering. In his highly regarded book TRANSFORMING CLASSROOM GRADING, Robert J. Marzano describes the use of this formula for standards-based grading. The math behind the power law formula is quite complex (see below), but all that’s necessary for its use is that you know what it does, how to interpret its scores, and when best to use it.
    In essence, the power law formula predicts what the student’s next…

  19. Provide a user option for which Date Completed to use when entering Scores: Due Date, Today, or Other

    When entering students scores for an assignment the Date Completed defaults to the due date. This of course is only a problem when students are submitting work late. It would be nice if it would either default to today's date or have an option either in the gradebook set-up or when entering scores fields.

  20. Enhance Keyboard Navigation in Scores By Class

    When entering grades on the assignments by class page, I would like to be able to press "PageUp" and "PageDown" to scroll up and down one page at a time.

    I also want to be able to use "Home" to go to the top of the spreadsheet (the first student) and "End" to go to the bottom of the spreadsheet (the last student).

    Also, the arrow keys currently only scroll up and down when you get to an empty cell. The arrow keys should scroll up and down regardless of whether you have enter a grade for the student already…
