In a Moodle 1.9 course selecting a student participant from the list of participants displayed a tabbed view with Profile | Edit profile | Forum posts | Activity reports | Roles. Having selected Activity reports my teacher would click 'Complete report' and view all the contents of graded and ungraded online assignments in the order they appeared in the course. Here's why this was useful for him:
"This enabled me to see at a glance how a student was responding to successive online assignments -- sometimes the quality of writing would decline markedly and I could pick this up"
"Also I could grade successive assignments by student and note how they were progressing"
Thus this display of Activity afforded an approach which made possible grading by student rather than by assignment.
Now we're at moodle 2.5.1 and the Outline report (Administration : Profile settings for [student user]> Activity reports > Complete report shows only the first week and we're currently at week four. Ditto, the Outline report only show the first week.
I think what I'm seeing here is a bug. It seems to me that the display of Activities is rudely truncated. I'll upload some screenshots later today which illustrate the problem better. If the 'Complete report' showed all the Assignment activities (as I would hope it should do) then we'd be home and dry.
