Manage user roles and memberships

A user with the role Administrator can edit user roles and Memberships.


User roles

Inspera Assessment support the following user roles.

Has access to the user administration tool from the cogwheel. Can create users and set role and privileges. 

Has access to the tools: Deliver, Monitor, Grade. Can create tests and invite contributors. A planner needs to be a planner on a test to be able to perform planner-actions.
A planner that creates a test is automatically a contributor on the test. A planner can also be invited by another planner, and thus a test can have more than one planner.

Chief invigilator
Has access to the tools Deliver and Monitor. Needs to be Chief invigilator on a test to be able to monitor a test in the Deliver or Monitor tool.

Has access to the Deliver and Monitor tool. Needs to be a contributor on a test to invigilate a test.

All users, with the different user roles, need to be invited as a contributor on a test to be able to perform actions on a test.
The only exception is an author who can author questions and question sets without being a contributor and a user with extended access (see below) 

Extended access

A user with extended access automatically gets the Planner role. In combination the Planner role and extended access allows the user to perform all planner actions without being a contributor on a test. A user with extended access has access to all content, thus only a few users should be granted this access. 

To be able to grant another user with extended access the user administrator also needs extended access.
