New activity: checklist

Re: New activity: checklist
 

Hi Davo,

I managed to switch "updateown" from student to teacher and indeed see this reflected in the table generated.  However when I log in as one of the enrolled teachers and select the Checklist, I see the list without the ability to mark and save it. 

I have experimented with all the permissions.  The only way I found that the teacher can update their checklist is if they have "Create and Edit Checklist" or "View Checklist" permission and they are Editing Teacher then select the relevant tabs.  In addition to being less "friendly" they have access to edit more than the check mark this way.   I think I'm missing something. 

I would really like them to be able to just mark the checkboxes directly after selecting the activity (without view or edit tabs) like students do normally.  Is this possible?

I should also note that I have many non-editing teachers enrolled to the same course (each in their own group, with their own group of students) and they goal is that each teacher will only update their own checklist (the same for all teachers and they will not be permitted to edit).  Only the Manager should be able to see/edit others.

Anyway, I am obviously new to this...  Hope I was clear and I hope what I want to acheive with this is possible.  I feel soooo close.

Thanks,
Heidi

There are a number of checklist permissions:

mod/checklist:edit - can change the checklist

mod/checklist:emailoncomplete - get notified when a user completes a checklist (if enabled in settings)

mod/checklist:preview - view a checklist without updating it (only checked if they don't have 'updateown')

mod/checklist:updatelocked - update check marks even if they are considered 'locked' (if enabled in settings)

mod/checklist:updateother - edit the teacher mark on another user's checklist

mod/checklist:updateown - tick off items on your own checklist

mod/checklist:viewmenteereports - only view reports of those you are a mentor for (rarely used)

mod/checklist:viewreports - access the report view

 

Choose the combination of capabilities you want from this list.

(if you don't give teachers the 'edit' capability, then they won't be able to edit the list)

I've tried everything.  Ithink....

I only want the teachers to tick off their checklist as they complete their tasks.

The teachers should not be allowed to edit the lists.

When I only permit "updateown" for teachers - there is no way to mark the tasks and no save button.

According to your screenshot, the checklist is set to 'teacher only' mode.

This means that students (i.e. users with the 'updateown' capability) are not able to update the checklist.

The only person who can update the checklist is a teacher (i.e. someone with the 'updateother' capability), who can go via the report, then click on the 'magnifying glass' icon then update the checkmarks for another user.

I can see where the confusion may lie, but basically you have redefined the capabilities of the teacher to match those that would normally be given to a student, which means they are now equivalent to 'student's as far as the type of checklist they are able to update - i.e. they can only update checkmarks if the checklist is set to 'student only' mode in the settings.

Just to clarify, in case I haven't written enough already:

Student only = users with 'update own' capaibility can update their own checkmarks

Teacher only = users with 'update own' capability are listed in the report and users with 'update other' capability can update the checklists of the 'update own' users

Teacher and Student = users with 'update own' capaiblity can mark off items on their checklist, but the actual progress is not updated until a user with 'update other' capability updates the checklist with their opinon on the marks.
