adding parent role
 

Hello,

I am using Moodle 2.4.3 and I am following this guide http://docs.moodle.org/24/en/Parent_role to add the parent role. I have created the role as mentioned in the guide, but I can't see the link 'assing roles relative to this user' in the edit profile block of the student. This link shows what I mean.

Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Mitchell

Did you definitely tick the box to assign the parent role in the user context when you created the new role? Creating custom roles

No, I didn't and that was the problem. Thank you for your quick reaction Mary.

Now I have the next problem. I have related a parent user to his 'child user' and I have added the mentees block on the start page of the parent. the parent sees the name of the child in that block. when I click on that user and I go to grades report. the report is empty but i have graded that account on an assignment in a course. I have double checked the permissions of that role.

 

do you know what I am doing wrong this time? smile

Make sure you click on a course first before clicking the grades -click a blue link in the child's profile to get into a course and then look. There is a screencast here  - look from 2.50 at how he gets to see the gradebook
