Capabilities give users the right to perform specific tasks in this software. Capabilities are sometimes known as rights, access, and/or privileges. Most often the capabilities that you have depend on which of these seven user groups you belong to:
Each user group has certain capabilities assigned to it by default, but these defaults can be changed (see below). Some capabilities affect more than one program, while some are specific to certain programs. Accelerated Math 2.0 has no capabilities that are just for this program.
Only district administrators and school administrators can change capability settings (by default). Teachers cannot view or change their capabilities; if you need help, contact your administrator for assistance.
The settings for capabilities can be changed in one of three ways:
- For existing users in a group: Changing the setting only affects people who are already in the user group when the setting is changed. Anyone added to the user group after that will still get the default settings for the capability.
- For new users in a group: Changing the setting only affects people who are added to the user group after the setting is changed. Anyone already in the user group before that will keep their existing settings for the capability.
- For individuals: If a capability is assigned to an individual, that assignment overrides any restrictions based on that person's user group.
