Admin Portal: Permissions

This is an overview of Admin Portal: Permissions. Learn how permissions work and how to assign permissions to your staff.

Updated over a week ago

Admin Portal has different permissions and access levels for administrators and staff members.

Admin Portal permissions are specific to the organization, unless a staff member has more permissions in the district than in the school, then the district level permissions will override the school level permissions.

Permissions and access levels

The following table describes the permissions in the Admin Portal (for information about mCLASS permissions and access levels, see here).

*as license member

To avoid data conflicts, Amplify recommends 1-2 educators with System permissions per district. Staff members with Enrollment permissions are able to complete the majority of rostering updates.

Admin Portal permissions required for mCLASS access levels

  • Educators set as Teacher in Admin Portal can:

    • Administer mCLASS assessments.

    • View and manage their mCLASS Groups.

    • Access mCLASS classroom reports.

  • Educators set as an Administrator in Admin Portal can:

    • View and manage their mCLASS Groups.

    • Import assessment data through the Assessment Importer.

    • Access mCLASS classroom reports and the Reporting and Analysis Suite (RAS).

    • View their classes and students, and edit their class name in the Admin Portal.

    • Intended for administrators who wish to view, but not maintain, mCLASS enrollment records, as well as for specialists working with multiple classes.

System permissions in the Admin Portal do not correspond to mCLASS System access; that access is not available for staff members in districts that enroll via the Admin Portal or third-party systems. See the Admin Portal: mCLASS FAQ for more information.

Permissions and organizations

Note that permissions apply to the organization the staff member is a part of. An Admin with System or Enrollment permissions can only view and modify information within the parent organization they belong to.

Example: Southeast District includes the following schools: Hillside, Riverside, and Valley. Southeast District is neighbors with the Central District.

Assigning permissions

To change a staff member’s permissions, you must have system permissions. Permissions can be set for each organization the staff is a part of. You can change one or more staff members’ permissions from the Actions List on the Staff List page. You can also change a staff member’s permissions from their Staff Profile page.

To change one or more staff members' permissions from the Staff List page:

  1. Select the staff members.

  2. Select Permissions in the Actions List.

    The Permissions panel displays.

    You can bulk edit and apply a specific permission for an organization to all selected staff members’ permissions.

    You can also individually edit the selected staff member’s permissions.

  3. Click Save Updates.

To change a staff member’s permissions from the Staff Profile page:

  1. In the Permissions section, select the organization you want the staff member to have permissions in.

  2. The organizations the staff member belongs to are available in this section. You can select:

    • A district - this gives staff permissions to all the schools in the district

    • One or multiple schools

    • None - this removes all permissions for the staff member in the organization

Standard permissions cannot be removed from a staff member.

3. Click Save Updates.

The changes you make are reflected on this page and on the Staff List.
