QA SUMMARY -
today, tested gb2 w/ad hoc groups.
more details available if needed...until I forget them.
basically, permissions seems to work with banner sections but is a disaster
if you use ad hoc groups.
a- there is still an issue with the default list of students visible (all vs section/group)
and Thomas knows.
b -you can limit the view to the appropriate section-students as needed with the view
dropdown. it makes grading a bit more cumbersome but do-able.
QA RESULTS -
AS LONG AS YOU DON'T DO GROUPS, so the users need to know this.
QA COMMENTS -
1 - b above could cause some confusion among TAs
if they confer and notice the differences in their default views. not the end of the world.
2 - gb2 permissions do NOT supersede TA section assignments. they seem to
be additive, which can lead to strange problems...duplicate student names (see
attached image) navigation next/previous in learner summary page doesn't work
I'm not sure how the 2 should work, but I'd vote for ...
* no permissions in gb2 and section assigned TAs can grade all items for all their section
students. like the "old" way.
* gb2 rules take precedence over section TA assignments. I can see a use for this.
for example - assign a TA to a section in section info (to show up on lab days) but in gb2
create a rule that he grades sections other than his own. so in gb2 he'd see ONLY the
students he can grade for that category and NOT his section info assigned sections.
* if TA needs to grade his and other sections, rules can be adjusted accordingly.
