There are two sections available in the Drafts Assessments module; My Folders and Shared With Me.

What's the difference?

My Folders:

The My Folders section of your draft assessments serves as the home for all of the assessments you've created and ones that you have the ability to edit, including:

  • Assessments and assessment folders you've created.
  • Assessments you've cloned.
  • Assessments that have been shared with you from another teacher.
  • Unlocked assessments that have been shared with you from an Admin account.

Shared With Me:

The Shared With Me section of your draft assessments serves as the home for all locked assessments that have been shared with you, including:

  • Individual locked assessments shared with you from an Admin account.
  • Folders of locked assessments share with you from an Admin account.

Functionality

The functionality of the Shared With Me section is the same for teacher and admin accounts, with the exception of one component (as noted below)

Editing

Can users edit assessments in the Shared With Me folder?

  • The padlock symbol indicates that all assessments in this section are locked.
  • Locked assessments are unable to be edited. However, if you have permissions to clone the assessment, the clone can be edited upon appearing in your My Folders section. See below for cloning.
  • This applies to both admin and teacher accounts.

Cloning

Can users clone assessments in the Shared With Me section?

  • If the folder was shared with cloning permissions, then yes.
  • To check, select the ellipsis to the right of the assessment. If "Clone to My Folders" is an option, the assessment can be cloned. If that isn't an option, that means the folder was shared without permission for cloning.
  • This applies to both admin and teacher accounts.

Sharing

Can users share assessments in the Shared With Me section?

This varies by user type:

  • Teachers are not able to share assessments in their Shared With Me section.
  • Administrators are able to share folders in the Shared With Me section, but not individual assessments. To share an individual assessment, clone the assessment (if cloning is allowed), and share the clone.

Folders

Can users add assessments to folders in the Shared With Me section?

  • Users are unable to add assessments to folders that are in the Shared With Me section.
  • Users are unable to take assessments from the Shared With Me section and add them to their own folders.
