Administrator Scoring

Post by rsaucier »

I'm not sure where this question should go, so if it needs to be moved, please do!

Our administrators also need to have their scoring carried through--we are "students" as well. Is there a configuration option to allow this or does anyone know where this check resides in the code?

Thanks!

Users enrolled to a course as course administrators or teachers actually are listed in the gradebook report but - for some reason I don't know - they don't appear for example when you try to see their answers or manually manage their scores.

In case like yours, though, I think the best practice for you administrators is having 2 users: one that operates as the course teacher/admministrator and a different one that operates as a simple student. Kind of
- user Max_Admin (enrolled as course administrator)
- user Max_Student (enrolled as a student).

That is an excellent idea but, just to be difficult, we are authenticating against our network (LDAP) and there's no failover to local authentication. I've asked our CIO if he's OK with creating special accounts for the LMS Admins or one umbrella administrator account.

Thank you for your time!

yeah, we know the pro's and con's of LDAP
you just gave an example of one typical problem they provide.
but the solution is exactly as you said: having user accounts and admin accounts both in LDAP and in docebo

Yup! I just got approval from the CIO to do it ... issue resolved ... not elegant but it's resolved. :)
