AET for Students
Part of AET's mission is to help transform recordkeeping into a
student-driven activity that takes place throughout the year. A quality
recordkeeping system should help students and teachers realize the power of data
analysis to provide continuous feedback for program improvement.
But, the AET does much more than maintain SAE records. Students can also
collaborate to plan Chapter activities, and they can use the AET Porfolio to
keep pictures and files. Our goal was to create an online system that is
actually "fun" for students to use while at home or in the school computer lab.
The Student AET is organized into several sections:
For more information about features in the Student AET, take a look at the
"Educational Materials" section or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and then take a test-drive with the free Demo
- Profile - Students maintain their general information, class
enrollment, offices, committees, resume, and personal goals.
- Journal - The journal tracks time and experience relating to courses,
CDEs, LDEs, SAEs, and other activities.
- Finances - The finances section is organized around "Experiences" that
include Entrepreneurship, Placement, Research, and Exploratory. Students
track income and expense relating to each Experience, and they maintain capital
items. The AET is a "real accounting system" that follows general accepted
accounting principles, and it helps students avoid common accounting mistakes
relating to non-cash transactions, depreciation, and inventories.
- Reports - When students keep good records, the AET will help them analyze
their data and make more informed business decisions. The reports section
includes a wealth of tools for analyzing and reporting their performance.
The AET also includes the "Degree/Application Manager" where students can
automatically generate FFA applications that are ready to submit.
- Toolbox - The toolbox is the place for a variety of other Ag-related
programs. Students can collaboratively build the Chapter's Program of
Activities, they can upload their ag-related pictures and files into the
Portfolio, and they can compare their performance to their classmates on the
