Instructor Q&A

Individually-assigned folders still visible to other students


Hi - 

I have a teacher who individually assigned an accomodated folder to 11 students and the gen ed folder to the other 19. Problem is that all students can see both folders, although they can't see the materials in the folders unless they were assigned to them. My teacher doesn't even want them to see that the folders exist because he doesn't want students to know there are 2 different versions of the test.

He individually assigned the folder itself along with the assignments within it. Is there something else I'm missing?

    We are also having this problem.  Folder is individually assigned, but all students are seeing the folder, even though they can't see the contents.  I thought the folder was supposed to be completely invisible to those not assigned to it?

    I am seeing that problem in my building as well.  I am the tech coach and would like to help my teachers with this issue.
