"Stores large amounts of information, easy to use"

What do you like best?

I like that the software can run labels and reports easily, it saves me a tremendous amount of time. It's also fairly self explanatory, meaning that all categories are labeled and placed so that they are easy to find.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the only way to import pictures is using a more complicated "Eagle" software. Also, until recently you were not able to see what date/time changes were made to student contacts. However, they have solved that issue very recently. It would be nice if it was more user friendly for the parents to update their information on the portal as well. As of now, it requires them to have specific login details from the school, and that can be time consuming to hand out to 600 parents.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It offers a quick easy way to access tons of information about students. It also really helps that we can document almost anything in the system, because this comes in handy when parents have important questions about their children. They can even know when they had a scraped knee or a blister at school.

"Good, from a teacher's perspective"

What do you like best?

I like how I can link classes together so that it's easier to manage when you teach 3 of the same classes.

I like how if the student is absent, it shows up on the gradebook screen and I can check to see if it was an excused or unexcused absence and deal with it accordingly in the gradebook without having to transfer to the attendance screen. It's also helpful to import grades for grade reporting.

What do you dislike?

I liked being able to see the whole class roster at one time (not on attendance view) and can click on each student and see various different information, such as their transcripts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a good attendance/gradebook system. I used to hear of teachers "losing" their grades, but since they've updated (which is when I have been using it), I haven't had any problems, thankfully.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Aeries for Attendance and the gradebook. It's easy for the students and parents to have one login for their school information.

What K-12 Student Information Systems solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Comprehensive software with lots of shortcomings"

What do you like best?

Aeries is a great software in that it allows the user to take attendance, record grades, create seating charts, keep records, etc. all in one place.

What do you dislike?

The service doesn't play well in terms of allowing the user flexibility. The interface isn't very intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this software as it is very comprehensive. However, the user interface is not very intuitive and sometimes confusing. I once thought that all my grades are submitted, but there were extra steps to take that I did not know about. I was late submitting grades once because I didn't know that my grades were not submitted until I was contacted and had to go to several people to get my grades done completely and correctly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm in the business of education. This software is supposed to be easy to use and intuitive, but it is not. One thing I would like to do on the fly is to duplicate assignments that can be given over and over again such as "homework" or "participation." I don't have the option to "copy assignment" so I can just change the date week by week or day by day.

"Aeries in the cloud"

What do you like best?

I am able to see the data from this year and prior years without logging in and out separately. I am also able to see the District or my own site.

What do you dislike?

That the teachers, admin, support staff, students, and parents all see a different version of the same information so it makes helping out difficult.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Complete Student Database at our fingertips. Now even faster than before

"Aeries Student Information System review"

What do you like best?

I like the easy accessibility that Aeries has. It is easy to use, simple yet has everything. I also like how the background pictures for the log—in page change daily. It’s refreshing and exciting.

What do you dislike?

I wish that students pictures were next to their names on the attendance page. If I have a sub, this would really help. It would also helps you find what you’re looking for in a shorter amount of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend using Aeries, especially since student information can be transferred from school site to another site

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Aeries provides a quick, easy, organized way to take daily student attendance and access student information. If I need to print out a student’s records of attendance, everything is logged into Aeries and ready for me to print.

"Great SIS "

What do you like best?

The Aeries Query is very powerful. Add the ability to use SQL and pulling information is easy.

What do you dislike?

Not all CS abilities seem to not be on the Web version yet. Have to swap between the two at times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a SIS that is well suited for CalPADS and is easy to run reports and queries, Aeries is your answer. Easy to use and quick to learn.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I great way to store student demographic, assessment, etc. data.

"Works Well!"

What do you like best?

We use Aeries for our attendance and out grade book in our school district. The attendance is easy to use but I personally liked the grade book before they did the updates last year. It still works fine but I feel that it's now as user friendly as it used to be. I love the attendance by photo feature and the seating chart is awesome. The student information is really easy to access which is another great feature.

What do you dislike?

I am not a huge fan of the way the grade book was updated last year. I feel that the need to move the screen to the left or the right to see everything is annoying.

I also don't like the way you choose the comments that you need to give a student when you are turning in grades.

The semester/quarter grades and report cards is a little hard to figure out as well. That changed last year with the update and I felt the way that it was before the update was easier to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think it's an easy system to use and it's great that the attendance and grade book are all in one place.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The gives us our grade book and our attendance all in one place. That makes it very easy to get things done. I'm in two different school districts and one uses a separate grading system which is annoying.

"Use of Aeries SIS from teacher to administrator to district-level program coordinator"

What do you like best?

The student information system as far as taking attendance is very effective. The inputting of discipline as an administrator works well and the program is fairly easy to navigate.

What do you dislike?

The gradebook has quite limited functionality and can be problematic at times. The reports are rather outdated and can use upgrading to be more effective and to capture a more selective audience. For instance, as a teacher you cannot run a report that has missing assignments for all students in the class on a single page. This would be particularly helpful to the teacher and would not require the scrolling through 100s of individual student pages to view students' missing work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Aeries SIS is working hard to make improvements to their gradebook. The gradebook used to be computer-based; however, when the switch was made to web-based, many features needed to be upgraded. Aeries has done an admirable job trying to update their software and to create a product that is easy to use. In addition, Aeries has created a way to include Standard's Based Grading, which has increased the value of their gradebook, especially for districts who are using SBG with their elementary populations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are no particular business problems being solved by using this program. The benefits of the program are that student information is contained in one place, attendance can be entered and recorded digitally by teachers and by attendance clerks at school sites, teachers can manage their own gradebooks and issue grades to students when the grading windows are activated by district administration, and discipline can be entered and maintained by school administrators.

"Great for Teachers"

What do you like best?

I like that it is very easy to learn how to use Aeries. It is great for connecting with students, parents, admin, counselors, and other teachers. It's great to have immediate access to all of a student's important information (grades, address, parents' email, phone number, class schedule, etc.) in one place. It makes communication fast and easy, and it is great for managing assignments and grades.

What do you dislike?

It is sometimes difficult/not intuitive. For example, creating reports often takes longer than it should because I have to spend several minutes clicking through and running several reports before I finally find the one I actually want.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has reduced the number of times students ask about their grades. It also makes it very easy for students to determine which assignments they are missing, making my job of getting absent students caught up on work much quicker.

"I love Aeeries"

What do you like best?

I have been using Aeries since I started teaching in America. In Mexico we used a different system that seemed to always crash. This let's me track students, absences, make seating charts etc. The school can input and control special codes and adapts who can see what based on privileges.

What do you dislike?

We had password issues at first, but I think that's user error.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This makes sorting attending, tracking grades and sharing student information SO MUCH BETTER

"Attendance is fine, grade book sucks"

What do you like best?

instant attendance with seating chart and notes available

What do you dislike?

gradebook is severely lacking in features and flexibility

Recommendations to others considering the product

again, the attendance features are satisfactory, not awesome but fine. The grade book feature barely merits the title. Comparing this grade book with the other 5 digital grade book programs I have used to cars, this is a moped.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

more accurate attendance = easier to track ADA and chronic attendance issues

"It’s alright"

What do you like best?

As a substitute, the ability to look up students’ parents’ information is awesome. Also picture attendance is helpful when I don’t know the students.

What do you dislike?

It definitely logs me out too quickly. I am not sure if it is something that admin can change, but it definitely sucks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping track of student’s attendance; finding students’ parents’ information.
