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.
