Hidden activities #1
Here is the problem - we restrict access to specific activities in a course depending on the student’s group and in the restriction settings we also hide the activity (hidden entirely if the user does not meet this condition) - this avoids confusion.
When a student views the My Progress block - the list of activities not attempted includes ones which are restricted and invisible on his course page. Because of our strict policy about attempting all work - this is a very stressful and confusing report.
I’ve attached a screen grab - logged in as a part-time student (group) who is not expected to attempt specific activities.
The problem also occurs in the mentor (Mentor Manager block) where a parent sees a list of non-attempted activities which are in fact restricted (with the restriction set to hidden) for the student.
