The administration block is used to provide context-sensitive links to settings pages when using the Classic theme or a theme based on Classic. (The standard Boost theme uses a Course index instead.) Note that Grades and Competencies are shown in the Navigation block instead of the administration block.

What appears in the administration block depends upon where the user is and what role they have in that location. For example, a site administrator on the front page will have Front page settings while a teacher in a course will have more options in Course administration than a student.

IMPORTANT.- If you are using Moodle 4.x and the Boost theme, the Administration block may not be available in the Add a block list! You may have to edit the Boost theme settings as explained by Mary Cooch in this post. Solution: go to Site administration > Appearance > Boost and remove everything from the "Unneeded blocks" field.

Here are examples of the Administration block:
