Aquifer roles and permissions are changing to better protect student data and information, resulting in a more efficient and FERPA-compliant administrative experience.

These changes affect users in three existing roles:

  • Course Managers
  • Course Administrators
  • Program Service Administrators

Changes​

  • New Roles
    • Lead Course Administrator (released July 1, 2023): The Lead Course Administrator (LCA) role was created to provide targeted access to student data in Aquifer Signature Course Reports, Aquifer Calibrate Formative assessments, and related reports. Up to three LCAs may be assigned per Aquifer Signature Course. On Nov. 13, Program Service Administrators (PSAs) will be assigned the Lead Course Administrator (LCA) role for any Aquifer Signature Courses that do not already have an LCA in place.
    • Custom Course Manager (released October 18, 2023): The Custom Course Manager role was created to provide targeted access to Course Reports associated with Custom Courses. Custom Course managers will be able to manage users and access Course Reports with student data for only the custom courses to which they are assigned.
  • Retired Roles:
    • On Nov. 13, the Course Manager and Course Administrator roles will be retired. Course Managers and Course Administrators previously had access to student data in Course Reports across all Aquifer Signature and Custom Courses. Any users in these roles automatically will be re-assigned as Custom Course Managers.

Program Service Administrators, Curriculum Administrators and Lead Course Administrators will retain their current access to Calibrate, as well as all program, course, and case reports.
