Administrative tools

The administrator has a drop down menu at the top of the page called “Administrative tools” which covers functions that either all or selected administrators have access to. These menus relate to actions at the system level or at the test/answer level.

Some accesses are controlled under System settings, while others are a setting at university level, i.e. whether there should be access at all. It is marked with an (S) whether access can be controlled under System settings and thus by the university itself or whether it must be ordered from Arcanic.

The overview below is a list of all the settings

Download plagiarized hand-ins is an adminisatrive tool where plagiarized hand-ins can be downloaded by entering the external id (The id can be found in Urkund/Ouriginal). What needs to be entered is the beginning of the submission ID, but with the added fileid. As such the id could, to give an example, look the following while downloading an AU hand-in: AU DE-AUprod_fileid_11111. This returns the hand-in in DE (S).

System settings gives access to edit elements such as general rights for e.g. administrators and assessors to edit system texts, assessment information and person-specific access to certain tools (S)

Login as another user is a function where the administrator can log in on behalf of assessors, students and supervisors. All actions are logged and reflect whether the action was made via “impersonation” of the administrator or by the real user himself
