Roles and capabilities in Moodle 1.7 onwards enable possibilities such as students being given permission to edit questions. The following capabilities are related to questions:

Capabilities in Moodle 1.9

Template:Moodle 1.9In Moodle 1.9 onwards,

  • The last nine capabilities listed replace moodle/question:manage
  • moodle/question:add is used to determine whether a user has permission to import questions
  • moodle/question:viewall and moodle/question:viewmine are used to determine whether a user has permission to export

Also in Moodle 1.9 onwards, certain capabilities contain the words all or mine.

  • all means all questions, and if you have the all capability, mine is not tested.
  • mine means that you have the capability for your questions but not for questions created by others

If you have the view capability for a question you can view a question created by another and "Save as New Question". This creates a new question that is one you created and which you can then do anything you have mine capability to do with.

Contexts and permissions

In Moodle 1.9 onwards, we have separate category hierarchies in Question contexts and the permissions for what you can do with a question depend on the context in which the question is.
