Aeries Web Version - Standards Based Progress Dashboards


The Standards Based Progress Dashboard is a view of the student's gradebook progress by standards and is available to Parents, Students, Administrators, and Teachers through Aeries Web Version and the Parent and Student Portals.

The dashboard displays all of the student's scores in the gradebook and the average overall grade over time. The initial view categorizes the graphs by the top level standards in the report card.

Selecting the View Related Standards button will display similar graphs for the detail standards that are associated with the top level standard. Clicking on the View Details link for the detail standards will display a similar expandable list of detail standards and assignments that will be used to calculate the grades for each of those standards.

Dashboard Display Requirements

In order for a Standards Based Progress Dashboard to display for a student, certain conditions must be met:

  1. The Standards Based Progress Dashboard displays for both Elementary and Secondary schools that have created Standards Based Report Cards. For secondary schools, the Secondary Standards Based Grade Reporting Options grade range will be used to determine whether the dashboard displays for a student based on that student's grade level.

  1. The gradebooks that display must be Rubric Gradebooks. The ManageOptions screen in the Gradebook contains the option to make a gradebook a Rubric Gradebook.

NOTE: this option should only be selected when a gradebook is first created; existing gradebooks with non-rubric assignments and non-rubric scores should not have this option turned on.

  1. The assignments that display must:
  2. be Rubric assignments
  3. be Summative assignments
  4. have at least one standard linked to the assignment (standards can be local or Common Core). The standard should be a standard on the report card setup (SBE for elementary, SBR for secondary) or linked to a standard on the report card.

Navigating the Dashboard

When first viewing the Standards Based Progress Dashboard in an elementary school, the top level standards will display with each of their respective dashboards.

In a secondary school, a drop-down list of the student's class sections will display sorted by period, with the first class selected by default. Only courses that have standards associated will display in the drop-down list. Selecting a different class section from the drop-down list will load the progress dashboard(s) for that class section.

If the Standards Based Progress Dashboard is accessed via the icon in Gradebook Scores by Student, then the class section corresponding to that Gradebook will be selected by default.

To the left of the graphs the Overall, Max and Min values will display.

  • Overall – the overall of all of the scores displayed for that standard, calculated using either simple averaging or linear regression. The overall score truncates to the hundredths place
  • Max – the highest score achieved for that standard
  • Min – the lowest score achieved for that standard.

The graphs plot the assignment scores and overall standard score as open circles. The overall score is the average or trend score for that standard based on the assignment scores at that point. Typically the overall score overlays the assignment scores if they are plotted in the same position.

Hovering over the Assignments or Overalls key to the right of the graph will display these points as closed circles.

Clicking on either the Assignments key or Overalls key will hide that data set on the graph. In the below example clicking on Assignments disabled the individual scores from displaying on the graph and only shows the overall scores.

Clicking on the Assignments key again will redisplay the orange assignment score points.

View Details

Clicking on the View Details button below one of the graphs will display an expandable list of the detail standards and assignments that affect the grade for this standard. Other elements such as the Assignment Category, Assignment Due Date, and Assignment Score are also included in the list.

Clicking on View Details again will close this view.

View Related Standards

Clicking on the View Related Standards button below one of the graphs will filter the page to display dashboard(s) for the sub-standards that are associated with that top level standard.

In the below example the MA.NBT and MA.OA standards are sub-standards of the MA standard. The top-level standard they are associated with (MA) is listed above the dashboards and displays as a button with an 'X'.

As long as there is another level of sub-standards below the currently displayed standard, the View Related Standards button will appear and can be used to drill down the dashboard further. In the example below, the View Related Standards button has been clicked on three successive levels, and this dashboard cannot be drilled down any further. The drilled-down standards are listed above the dashboard, starting with the top-level standard in the left-most position.

Clicking one of the drilled-down standards above the dashboard (the buttons with an 'X') will remove that standard from the filter and refresh the dashboard.
