Powershell Script Modification

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have a script below that I can't figure out how to modify. I am wanting to create two additional folders (Documents and Tests). That part works.

I am wanting to make it so that the Documents folder gives everyone read/execute access.
I am wanting to make the Tests folder have everyone full control.

How can I do this within the script below?
$BasePath = "\\arwen\gahomework"  
$DefaultFolders = "Block 1", "Block 2", "Block 3", "Block 4", "Tests", "Documents"  
Get-QADGroupMember "Test Group" | ForEach-Object {  
  $NewFolder = New-Item "$BasePath\$($_.LastName)-$($_.FirstName[0])" -ItemType Directory  
  $DefaultFolders | ForEach-Object {  
    New-Item "$($NewFolder.FullName)\$_" -ItemType Directory
