It appears that the All Purpose Item option in Assignments does not honor the permission for instructors of "All Purpose Item" under "Additional information".
Steps to reproduce:
- Create an assignments with adding “All purpose” item under “Additional information”.
- Select instructor2 and all students under “Show to”, so that they can see the All purpose item.
- Login as instructor 1, s/he cannot see the message of “All purpose” when s/he clicks on the Assignment title but s/he can see the “All purpose item” by clicking “Edit” (Please note that “Private Note” option was hidden if the Private Note is not shown to instructor1).
- Login as Instructor2 who is allowed to see the All purpose item but s/he cannot see the All purpose item under Student view of the assignment despite both students and instructor 2 are allowed to see the All purpose item.
When the All purpose item is not released to the students, students cannot see the item as expected.
