    Student drop box (homework folder) permissions

    I would like to make a student drop box ( a homework folder) where the students can save documents only. I don't want students to see the other students documents in the folder, just be able to save their documents to the drop box folder. Then teachers would have permission to read and change the student documents. What permissions would the folder need for the students to save only. I have tried several combinations of permissions, but have not found a way to do this.

    This would be on a Windows Server 2003 Standard Server.

    Re: Student drop box (homework folder) permissions

    Create 'teacher name' post box and set the following permissions for staff and students

    students
    write

    staff
    -Modify, Read & execute, List folder contents, Read, Write

    'teacher name' owner of the post box

    -Full permission

    I suggest you set a folder quota on each post box this will force the staff to clear there own post box, saving you the time of having to go clear them your self.

    Also when the kids save the work, they will need to put the first initial and last name at the end of the file name, otherwise if a full class saves there science coursework as 'science courswork' and copys that file to the teachers post box, they will just overwite each others work.

    You can demon starte that to the staff when you show them.

    I gave students 'write' and when they tried to save they got the message 'access denied'.

    Re: Student drop box (homework folder) permissions

    right click the 'teacher name' post box select properties and have a look see what effective permissions are set for the folder under your students group.

    I have

    Create/Write data
    Create folders/append data
    Writte attributes
    Write Enable attributes
    Read permissons

    checked

    Re: Student drop box (homework folder) permissions

    This is what I did:

    Made folder called "Public" and it is shared as "Public" and users have "Change and Read" permissions on the share.

    Inside the "Public" folder is a folder called "Test Dropbox". It is shared as "Test Dropbox and "Everyone" has "Change and Read"

    Under the Security Tab, "students" have Create Files/Write Data, Create Folders/Append Data, Write Attributes, Write Extended Attributes and Read permissions.

    "Apply these permissions to objects and or containers within this container only is not checked.

    In Advanced Security setting box....Allow inheritable permission from the parent to this object and all child objects is not checked.

    Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child object is not checked.

    you need to give the everyone group under share tab permissions 'Full control'

    Correct me if im wrong

    but when you share a folder on an NTFS drive you should give the shared folder everyone group full control and then setup the ntfs permissions, other wise you will get conflict.

    I changed "everyone" to 'full control" as you suggested and students still get 'access denied' message.

    Re: Student drop box (homework folder) permissions

    The way i set up mine students can only copy files to it, not save there. If they can write, then they have permissions to do stuff I don't want them to.. IIRC.

    Very interesting - I'd love to see how others set this up

    Re: Student drop box (homework folder) permissions

    i wrote a php site to do exsactly this:

    criteria for submission (file size, extention type, time of day {IE submission window}, date) - if these arnt satified then submission is rejected.

    teachers to email to an automated recipient their class name and window times where the php site will use this info to display on the site, and fill in all relative fields in drop downs.

    uses client side scripting to retrieve AD username/computername and add these details to drop folder when renaming the student files.

    send confirmation emails to student/staff about successful file submssion.

    and some other things ... which i like to keep proprietary. :S

    enjoi!

    Re: Student drop box (homework folder) permissions

    You can do this by setting up the permissions as detailed earlier, i.e. teacher = modify, student=write. The students must save the file in their own area first and then copy it, go to the folder containing the drop-box, right-click on the drop-box folder and select paste - you can't save directly into the drop-box.

    Anyone figure it out yet?

    I'm running server 2003 and placing the permissions for "write" (only) on the dropbox folder for my students security group. My clients are running win xp pro.

    The share permissions are "everyone" full control. It doesn't work.

    they get the error message: Cannot copy "filename": The operation completed successfully.

    I've tried right clicking and pasting the file too...

    I know it shouldn't be this complicated. Has anyone figured it out yet? Thanks
