Assigning users to a Self-Study

Individuals working in Planning & Self Study can be added to a Self-Study report as either:

  • a Self-Study Administrator
  • a Narrative Contributor

Self-Study Administrators have greater control over managing evidence within the Self-Study, and can also assign other users as Narrative Contributors throughout the Self-Study. Only individuals who are involved in the administrative task of collecting data for the Self-Study should be made a Self-Study Administrator.

Note: Any user who has the Administrator role in Planning & Self Study, AND who is aligned to the top-institutional level of the hierarchy in System Administration will automatically be added as a Self-Study Administrator upon the creation of the Self-Study. 

A Narrative Contributor is given access only to contribute content to the specific standard(s) to which they have been assigned. All users who are expected to contribute to the Self-Study but who are not expected to manage the collection of data on an administrative level should be assigned as Narrative Contributors. 

Assigning a Self-Study Administrator

  1. Enter the Accreditation Self-Studies module.
  2. Click on the name of the Self-Study.
  3. Select the "Overview" item from the left-hand menu. This is the top-level item of the Self-Study structure.
  4. Within the "Details" box of the "Overview" item, the current Self-Study Administrators will be listed (see note above about top-level administrators who are automatically added upon creation of Self-Study).
  5. Click on the name(s) of the current Self-Study Administrators.Administrators.png
  6. This will produce a pop-up box from in which other current Planning & Self Study users can be selected. Once the selections are made, select the "Apply" button in the bottom-right corner.

  5. This will produce a pop-up box from in which current Planning & Self Study users can be selected. Once the selections are made, select the "Apply" button in the bottom-right corner. 
  6. If the user requires access to multiple standards, this process will need to be repeated for each individual standard.
