Course role code

Question asked by baxl@missouri.edu on Dec 1, 2015

Does anyone have any code they can share to create a course role with the following permissions.

  • can view content
  • can view gradebook
  • cannot edit grade
  • can view quizzes questions, but cannot view exam questions (midterm and final exams)

 

Basically, the user cannot grade, but can view the grades and comments from a teacher, and they can view quiz questions, but they cannot view exam questions.

The Javascript I have isn't quite working the way I need it to, and it's not possible to do this when I enable or disable some of the permissions.  Here's the code (i removed the link to our server and noted it):

 

//alert(window.location.pathname);

var url = window.location.pathname;

url = url.split("/");

 

if((url[1]=="courses")&&(url[3]=="quizzes")){//check if on a quiz page

 

    //alert("we are on a quiz page");

    var courseID = url[2];

    var quizID = url[4];

    var quizReadOnlyPage = url[5];

    //alert(courseID);

    //alert(quizID);

   

    //find out if quiz has access code

    $.getJSON("/api/v1/courses/" + courseID + "/quizzes/" + quizID, function(dataQuiz){

 

        if(dataQuiz.has_access_code==true){

           

            alert("This quiz has an access code");

           

            //var quizAccessCode = true;

           

           

            //get self ID

            $.getJSON("/api/v1/users/self", function(dataID){

                selfID = dataID.id;

                alert("My id is: " + selfID);

                alert("here we have a link to our server" + courseID + "/enrollments?include[]=role&user_id="+selfID);

            });//end json get self ID   

               

               

               

                //course and id are hard coded; change to variable once it is owrking.

            $.getJSON("ourtestinstance/api/v1/courses/870/enrollments?include[]=role&user_id=" + selfID, function(enrollData) {

       

                            alert("Enroll Data: " + enrollData.role);

                            alert("getting users....");

                            var blockExams = false;

                            //loop through enrollments, find if "self" is in here.

                            $.each(data,function(i, value){

                                alert(value.role);

                            });//end for each enrollment

                                /*alert("checking role...");

                                if((enrollData.role=="BR_Coordinator")||(enrollData.role=="BR_Teacher")){

                                    //alert(selfID + " " + value.role + ". You are a br teacher or coord");

                               

                                    blockExams = true;

                                    alert("i am blocking you..." + blockExams);

                                    $("ul.page-action-list").hide();//block exams

                               

                                    if(quizReadOnlyPage == "read_only"){

                                        alert("you cannot be here!");

                                        $("body").hide();

                                    }else{

                                        alert("you are fine to view the page.");

                                    }//end if quiz read_only page

                                }else{//if not a BR Corrd and Teacher

                                    alert("You are allowed to view this page.");

                                    $("ul.page-action-list").css("visibility","visible");//unblock

                                }//end if self is enrolled AND  a BR teach or coord

                */

                   

                        }); //end get jSON enrollments

 

          }else{//if this is not an exam -- does not have an access code

            $("ul.page-action-list").css("visibility","visible");//unblock

            //alert("this is not an exam");

        }//end if has access code

 

    });//end json get access code information

   

}//end IF on a quiz page

 

 

 

       

            /***********END BLOCK EXAM*************/

 

 

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!
