Permissions and roles

To complete the procedures in this article, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. This often excludes Students and TAs by default. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles.

For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles.

In order to give an assessment, you must first publish it. For instructions, see Publishing an assessment. Once it's published, your assessment's availability depends on how you've configured certain settings:

  • The assessment will be available only during the time frame you specified in the "Delivery Dates" setting. If you leave the

"Delivery Dates" fields blank, your assessment will be available forever or until you retract it. For more information, see Retracting or removing a published assessment.

  • In the "Assessment released to:" setting, if you selected Anonymous Users, then anyone to whom you've given the URL can take the assessment. If you selected your site or Selected Groups, then only site members or members of the groups you checked will be able to take the assessment (either via the URL or from within the site).

See Taking an assessment.

  • If you created a secondary username and password in the "High Security" setting, people will need to authenticate with that username and password to gain access.

For more information on assessment settings, see Assessment settings.
