Users can be assigned a custom role with limited permissions. Only org admins can create a custom role, but teachers and org admins, depending on the type of role, can assign a custom role to a user.
Creating a Custom Role
The custom roles page can be accessed from the 'Custom Roles' section of the org settings page.
On the custom roles page, a custom role can be created by clicking on the 'Create Role' button.
Users can be assigned to course-type roles by teachers. Once a custom role is created, a tab for that role will appear on the enrollment page.
view: user can see a student's submissions via 'Dashboard -> Summary -> [student] -> Submissions'
grade: user can see and change a student's grade on the submissions page
view: user can enter a student's workarea via 'Dashboard -> Summary -> [student] -> Workarea'
submit: user can submit for a student
Users can be assigned to org-type roles only by org admins. On the same page where custom roles are created, the 'Add User' button will bring up a modal where roles can be assigned to users. Note that only org-type roles can be assigned on this page.
