Onefile has several different user roles that allow access to different parts of the system. A brief description of the most common roles is provided here.
As a staff member you may be assigned more than one role. If this is the case, you will have separate accounts for each role. To make it easier for you manage your account log-ins, we recommend that you create a Onefile Keychain. This will allow you to access all of your accounts with one username and password. See the attached guide for details.
Faculty Centre Managers are responsible for setting up and maintaining a centre. A Centre is effectively a self-contained version of Onefile for one of the college’s faculties or departments. One of the Centre Manager’s most important roles is checking new qualifications that are to be added to the centre. Additionally, they can create any type of user except an enterprise account. They can also create templates to standardise assessments across the centre or reduce the workload of assessors.
Assessors support and evaluates learners working towards qualifications, making sure that they meet the occupational standards required. Assessors are able to create assessment plans; assess and annotate learners’ work; and conduct learner reviews.
Internal Verifiers (IVs) are responsible for checking that assessments are compliant with guidelines and internal processes. An IV account can create sampling policies, create sampling plans and conduct sampling of various types of assessment.
Learners can upload evidence to fulfil criteria for their learning aims. They can also start certain types of assessment on their own, allowing them to work at their own pace.
To aid you in inducting your learners into the Onefile system, we have created several resources for training sessions. You will find a link to a lesson plan in the Learners section of the guide below. This will take you through running an induction session. Additionally, templates have been created in Onefile to demonstrate the different types of task a learner might be expected to do.
Several training accounts have also been created for learners, the login details for these accounts are included with the lesson plan. Before using these accounts please contact the Learning Technologies team so that we can make sure you have an assessor account on the training centre and assign the accounts to you.
If you have any questions or comments about these resources please get in contact with the Learning Technologies team.
