AP Admin Role
Organizations with an Institutional license will receive one or more AP Admin accounts. These users can view and create new users, promote other users to be Exec Editors or Admins and to perform all the functions of a regular instructor and Exec Editor.
Admins can also review and export all data created by the institution’s users.
If a user has Admin capabilities they will see the Admin dropdown in the main menu with the following choices:
- New User
- Manage Users
- View Libraries
- Summary Usage
- Detailed Usage
- Organization Settings
Manage Users & New User
Admin users can list all users, add new ones manually, and adjust user permissions and the ability to edit.
If a user does not have the ability to Edit they can simply use Libraries provided to them and cannot create their own content.
Admins can create new users or double-click to edit existing users.
This view makes it easy to see ALL Libraries created by users at your institution.
Admins can review all activity, seeing numbers of Comments created via AP’s Microsoft Word app and browser Extension.
Columns are easily sorted and data can be searched and exported.
Here we see an Admin (notice the additional main menu entry) filtering ALL data by a single instructor.
Not shown in this screenshot are the actual Comments – appearing in alphabetical order – representing all the feedback created by this particular instructor using AP.
Here we see all activity for a specific user – including the date of first feedback, latest feedback, total Comment count and then the exact details of feedback created including the text entered.
The admin can sort, filter and export this data.
Remember that, in Google Docs and Canvas SpeedGrader, AP has superpowers: AP can optionally save ALL the comments a user adds as comment bubbles (both Google Docs and Canvas SpeedGrader), rubric comments (Canvas SpeedGrader) and overall assignment comments (Canvas SpeedGrader). This data capture can even include (for Canvas) Course, Assignment and Student meta data – creating a rich record of feedback.
For the first time, educators can understand exactly what sort of feedback is being provided to students – across a program, college, school or entire institution. Is your writing instruction focused mostly on mechanical issues (commas, typos)? Or are you engaging students with big ideas, rhetoric and teaching academic research and the use of evidence?
Admin users can filter by instructor to query activity and review then export feedback.
View institutional subscription dates and other info plus access global settings that control your user’s experience with AP including:
- Comment History: user’s choice, OFF, ON but anonymized.
- Ability for users to create & edit new Libraries.
- Show AP support for users (turn OFF if you don’t want your users contacting 11trees for help).
- Review the email domains configured by 11trees to automatically provision users to your institutional account (adding new email domains requires changes only 11trees can make on your behalf – but happy to do it!).
