  Subadministrator vs. Education
  Administrator—Which Permission
  Should You Assign?

 

Posted August 4, 2009

Education Administrators (EAs) have access to all administrative areas of the Competency Assessment Program. EAs can add/upload students, revoke student access, assign courses, use CourseBuilder and ChecklistBuilder, assign subadministrators, and view reports.

On the other hand, subadministrators (SAs) have limited access to the administrative areas. There are three types of subadministrators:

  • Group SAs are assigned to a specific group of students. Depending on the permission assigned, they can assign any course and view any report for their group of students.
  • Course SAs are assigned to a specific course. Depending on the permission assigned, they can assign that course to any student that is associated with the lab and view reports related to that course.
  • CourseBuilder SAs are assigned to a specific CourseBuilder course and can add, edit, and delete any element of that course.

There is no limit to the number of Education Administrators or Subadministrators that you can assign permission.
