Differences in versions

My overview for M2. "Grader report preferences" is the page to explain to the teacher those report settings that they can change.

These essentially become a teacher's personal report settings for all grader reports in any course they teach. Thus if a teacher wants to see a grader report one way in course A and another way in course B, they will have to change "My preferences". This is different than the site preferences for the grader report, which sets the initial defaults for all teachers.

I can see these settings in 1.9.1. However, (could be me) I can not see them on my 1.9.5 and 1.9.9+ (Build: 20101013) localhost because there is no tab and nothing in the dropdown menu in the upper left. Evidently the teacher preferences was improved/expanded in 1.9.1 then dropped completely by 1.9.5. It this correct?

In 2.0 a teacher can use "My preferences" tab or the "My preferences" link in the Course administration>Course grade settings>Grader report to set any of 14 variables. The site administrator sees these plus a 5 more under Grades>Report settings>Grader report in a long un-grouped list. The teacher has their preferences listed under 3 headings: Show/hide toggles, Special rows, and General. I like the teacher's headings and will suggest that the site admin be rearranged.

I wanted to set out the overview for others to double check my thinking. I will make a note about some versions of 1.9 but will move onto 2.0 instructions, which will cover those for 1.9.1. --chris collman 15:18, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
