It is the memory of others in our department that TA permissions allowed TAs to look at student's answers and evaluate what issues they were having.
Today, it seems to look at their answers, one needs to act as the student user.
This privilege seems restricted to professors (the subject of this note).
Is this a change?
Presuming we allow TA's this access, are there pitfalls? I assume like professors, someone can enter an answer to ascertain the validity of the problem without impacting the student record itself. This seems covered by
record_answers_when_acting_as_student => undef
Our inclination is to allow this action for TAs.
