Accounts in Headrush can have one to many roles associated to them. Roles give that respective person access to various permissions and features within Headrush.
Here are the available roles in Headrush:

  • Student

  • Advisor

  • Credit Manager

  • Admin 


  • Start a New Module (on by default)

  • Add Evidence

  • View and Engage in Modules where the Student is a Member

  • Complete Student Self-Assessment (only final product and reflection)

  • View Performance History (i.e.- Learning Target and Credit completion)

  • Make a Copy of a Module

  • Access the Warehouse (on by default)


  • Everything a Student can do and view for students associated to the Advisor via an Advisory Group

  • View 'My Groups’ (assuming Advisory groups exist for the Advisor)

  • Add Evidence on behalf of others

  • Assess Students on a Module

  • Add a Module to the Warehouse (if configured by the Admin as such)

Credit Manager

  • Allows the Account to Assess/Manage Credits on Modules

  • Used in addition to the Advisor role to govern which teachers are empowered to assess credits


Roles Within Modules

Beyond roles associated to a person’s account, there are roles within the context of a Module that are equally useful to know and understand.  These Module related roles are governed by the Module Overview’s Members prompt: 


  • View the Module

  • Edit the Overview

  • Add/ Edit Tasks

  • Add/Edit Columns to the Task Board

  • See every member’s Activity in the Module’s Activity Feed

  • If person has a Student role, complete a Self-Assessment (only final product and reflection)


  • View the Module

  • View the Evidence View for multiple students on the Task Board

  • If an Advisor is a creator, he/she does not need to be added as an Advisor


  • View the Module

  • Add Evidence

  • Participate in Task Discussions

  • Complete a Self-Assessment (only final product and reflection)

Advisors of Learners within the Module

If a user is an advisor of a learner (i.e. someone who has an advisor-learner relationship though an Advisor group) but not explicitly listed as an advisor on a module, they are still granted special read-only privileges on that module: they will be able to view all evidence, add/edit evidence and view assessments related to their advisees only.
