  • Question

  • I need help assigning permission to group of student in a school portal. i don't want to give them a CONTRIBUTE permission cause they r students and i don't want them to tamper with the WEB PARTS. READ seams to be the only way but i need them to be involved but not able to modify the web parts

  • SharePoint allows for this scenario. (I have assumed WSS)

    Central Administration > Application Management > Policy for Web Application > Manage Permission Policy Levels > Add Permission Policy Level

    Create the policy permission level called "students"
    Towards the bottom of the page ...

    Personal Permissions 
    Grant    Deny  
              Manage Personal Views  -  Create, change, and delete personal views of lists. 
              Add/Remove Personal Web Parts  -  Add or remove personal Web Parts on a Web Part Page. 
              Update Personal Web Parts  -  Update Web Parts to display personalized information. 

    Then apply this policy to your students.

    Hope this gets you in the right area
