Can a user be restricted to view grades of particular students in a class

Jump to solution

An EC teacher should only be able to see the grades of the students she manages.  I would like to assign our EC teacher to courses containing her students so that she could see their assignments.  I would also like to allow her to see the grades (progress) of ONLY her students.

Hello @Ginger_England; that is exactly what the Observer role was created for in Canvas.  There is additional detail here:  What is the Observer role?   Instructure has created an entire set of documentation specifically for people in the Observer role here:  Canvas Observer Guide .  In case that's a bit of overkill, however, the basics of what an Observer can do is outlined here:  What can Observers do in a Canvas course?

If you find the Observer role too narrow or too broad for your own specific purposes, you should also be aware that some specific role types can be created/modified by your Canvas administrator.  (You didn't say if you are the administrator or not, but just an FYI).  Hope this helps.
