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.

The act of making an assessment available to its users is referred to as publishing. Users will not be able to access your assessment until it is published. You should make all modifications and corrections to an assessment before publishing it. If you find an error or wish to otherwise modify a published assessment, see Modifying an existing assessment.

To publish an assessment you've created:

  1. In the menubar of the relevant site, click Tests & Quizzes.
  2. On the Assessments page, under "Pending Assessments", click the Settings button that corresponds to the assessment you wish to publish.
  3. On the Settings page, make sure all settings are configured as you want them, and then click Save Settings and Publish. For more information about the settings and their options, see Assessment settings.
  4. On the Publish Assessment Confirmation page, you'll see the settings you configured for the assessment, plus a URL you can use to distribute the assessment. You can choose to send an email notification to students upon publishing the assessment. Click Publish again to confirm, or Cancel to abort.

On the Assessments page, your newly published assessment will appear under "Published Assessments"; a copy also remains under "Pending Assessments" in case future modifications are necessary.
