In Sakai 2.6 Matrices, what are the user roles and associated actions?

Each user's role and permissions determine what the user can do in the Matrices tool. The four principal roles and the matrix actions associated with each role (via permissions) in the out-of-the-box version of Sakai are given below:

  • CIG Coordinator

    • Design, create, modify, and delete matrices
    • Publish a matrix so that other roles can use it

      Important: Do not publish a matrix until it is exactly the way you want it.

    • Export a matrix and then create an identical copy by importing it into the same site or a different site
    • Change the Matrices tool permissions for all users in any given role
    • Change the status of a matrix cell for the current user or all users

  • Participants

    • Add evidence of their learning to each cell by completing forms or attaching examples of their work
    • Write reflections about their learning
    • Submit cells for evaluation
    • Read the feedback and evaluations of their work

  • Reviewers

    • Provide formative feedback on a participant's cell by completing a feedback form

  • Evaluators

    • Provide summative evaluation on submitted cells by completing an evaluation form
    • Change the status of a cell from Pending to Completed (or back to Ready if additional work is needed), or leave the status as Pending (if additional evaluations are required)
