User Roles in Lexplore

Staff members within your organisation can be invited to different roles in the Lexplore Portal depending on what role they have at school. In this article, you will read more about the different roles you and your colleagues can have in Lexplore.

A member of staff can have one or many roles within your Lexplore organisation account. For instance, you can be both a Teacher and an Examiner.

Here we have specified all roles that exist and what features they come with.

Lexplore Portal Roles

  • Ambassador - This is the person that drives Lexplore within a school and makes sure that assessments are taking place, and that Teachers and Examiners have everything they need. When Ambassadors have questions about Lexplore they should first of all turn to the organisation's Project Manager. Features for this role:
    • Invite, update and edit other staff members in the team within the Portal.
    • Have a detailed view of all classes at school and their results.

If your organisation has an active SIS integration between Lexplore and the Student Information System, enabling synchronization of students, the manual handling of pupils is turned off for all roles having that feature. For instance, in those circumstances, it is not possible to manually add or import pupils, nor edit student names and so on.
