All other activities give a view event an edulevel of 2. Assignments only give a view an edulevel of 1. This makes the course participation report confusing because although it lets you select Views as a parameter for the report, and although it tells you that it shows Views in the UI of the report, it never shows views for assignments because they don't have an edulevel of 2.
(You can see this edulevel being set in the code in every module's mod/[modname]/classes/event/* file.)
I put in a Moodle Tracker for this. https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-57933 But there has been no interest in it. I could semi-fix this in the course participation report by adding a message that Views aren't listed in the report for assignments no matter what you select. However, it seems wrong that viewing an assignment isn't given a higher value. I don't want to change the value in the assignment module itself because I don't know how that might ripple through all of moodle and affect something else.
Any thoughts on this?
