Question permissions

Jump to: navigation, search

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:

Template:Moodle 1.9From Moodle 1.9 onwards :

*all or * mine

Template:Moodle 1.9Notice that apart from the add capability other capabilities to manage questions are *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' that 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

Template:Moodle 1.9 In Moodle 1.9 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.
