A multiple assignment scheme (MAS) is a method to construct secret sharing schemes (SSSs) for general access structures. There are MASs using threshold and ramp SSSs. The paper proposes new MASs using ideal SSSs realizing compartmented access structures and those using SSSs realizing multi-level access structures. Since the ideal SSSs realizing compartmented access structures and SSSs realizing multi-level access structures are natural generalizations of threshold and ramp SSSs, respectively, the new MASs cannot be less efficient than those using threshold or ramp SSSs.
