Why can't Assistant see people in one course?
Hi Aimee - "Assistant" is not a role that is one of the built-in roles in Canvas, so my hunch is that this is a specially-made role at your institution. (The usual ones are Student, Teacher, TA, Observer, and Designer.) Your best bet may be to check with your institution's Canvas support to see exactly what an Assistant is able to see or not see in a course site.
Hope this helps a bit.
Yes, I want TA which is an Assistant title in our class.
In that case, a TA should have pretty much the same rights that you do. One possibility: has the course been divided into sections or had sections combined? Make sure the TA is enrolled in all possible sections. Ordinarily, when (for example) section 1 and section 2 of a course site is combined, the TA would have rights to all sections, but that could differ at your institution.
As Ken said, you'd want to check with the Canvans Help Desk or Canvas Admins at your school to see wby the Assistant role isn't allowed to see People. Each school is in charge of deciding what permissions each role has so there is no way for the Canvas Community to help with that.
