MANAGING ROLES AND PERMISSIONS

UNDERSTANDING ROLES AND PERMISSIONS

  • Mastery Connect has many roles and permissions that allow you to delegate certain responsibilities and tasks, and manage access to your teachers and staff.
  • The highest level is District Administrator, with the lowest being Teacher.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I CAN MANAGE ROLES AND PERMISSIONS?

  • Ensure your Mastery Connect account has the Admin Tab. Through the Admin Tab, select Manage and then select Teachers.

PRO TIP: You will have the ability to update the role of any staff member that has equal or less permissions than your own.

EDITING ROLES AND PERMISSIONS

  • If your account has permission to update roles, select Admin Tab, Manage, and Teachers.
  • Locate the user you want to update permissions for and select Edit to assign their primary role under the Role dropdown menu.

PRO TIP: Only a District Administrator can assign Additive Permissions.

DISTRICT AND SCHOOL-LEVEL ROLES

WHAT ROLES ARE THERE AT THE DISTRICT AND SCHOOL LEVELS?

  • Standard District Level Roles
    • District Administrator
    • Limited District Administrator
    • District Administrator Reports
  • Standard School-Level Roles
    • School Administrator
    • Limited School Administrator
    • School Administrator Reports
    • Instructional Coach Administrator
    • Instructional Coach
    • Teacher
  • Additive Permissions
    • Benchmark Author
    • Benchmark Facilitator
    • Content Approval
    • District Item Author
    • Benchmark Reporting

WHY DOES THE ROLE ASSIGNED TO A STAFF MEMBER MATTER?

  • Assigned Roles and Additive Permissions determine what a staff member will be able to “see” and “do” within the Mastery Connect platform.

PRO TIP:

  • It is important to consider what responsibilities a staff member has/will have as this will help determine the best role and Additive Permissions to assign.
  • A user’s job title within the school district may not be the equivalent Mastery Connect Role. It is essential to consider what the user will need access to within the platform.

LET'S TRY IT OUT

WHAT ROLES AND PERMISSIONS SHOULD WE ASSIGN?

Ms. Williams is a Literacy Coach at Quincy Elementary who supports grades K-5 and monitors school reports. She also builds and authors district benchmarks.

What roles and permissions should we assign?

Ms. Williams is set as an Instructional Coach Admin because she requires school-level access to overview reports and management of teachers in her building.

Her Additive Permission is set as Benchmark Author because she will need the ability to author district items and build district-level assessments.

PRO TIP: Ms. Williams’ primary role and Additive Permission allow her to access the reporting and management within Mastery Connect. Remember: a user’s job title within their organization may not necessarily be the same role (or title) assigned in Mastery Connect. Ultimately, Ms. Williams’ roles and permissions were assigned based on her responsibilities.
