NEW RELEASE V1.1 - Co-Teacher functionality
OK - It was thorny to figure out, but I think I've got the plumbing done for co-teacher workflow to be as seamless as possible.
Here's how it works:
There are two levels of sharing for collaborating teachers: roster level and assignment (or "Co-Teacher") level...
If you share another teacher on a ROSTER (from Step 1) they get the ability to use that roster in their own assignments, access to all student folders, ability to add and remove students from it, etc. But this doesn't necessarily mean they are shared on each Doctopus ASSIGNMENT you provision for that roster.
If you share another teacher on an ASSIGNMENT (from Step 3), they get EDIT access to the Doctopus spreadsheet and all student files produced for that assignment (but not student folders, unless they already have it). They also get COMMENT rights on the rubric, and the ability to use Goobric with that assignment.
A Co-Teacher CAN:
- Access all student files for that assignment
- Access the master rubric file (comment only)
- Assess all student files using Goobric
A Co-Teacher does NOT have access to the following features:
- Setup steps 1-6 (this means they cannot add other co-teachers)
- Embargo / unembaro
- Ownership transfer
- Ability to attach or change rubrics
If you share another teacher as an editor on your Doctopus Spreadsheet via Google's "Share" button, REMEMBER THAT YOU ALSO HAVE TO RUN STEP 3 before they will be able to access any Doctopus features on that Spreadsheet.
If a user has been shared on a Doctopus assignment created prior to 4/19/14 they will get a prompt letting them know that they have not been added as a Co-Teacher by the assignment owner, and an email will be sent to the spreadsheet owner letting them know how to add the co-teacher (via Step 3).+Eric Allatta
This should answer your request of a few days ago!
Others who have tried using Doctopus on shared spreadsheets should find that a lot of strange behavior goes away with this upgrade.
