We are setting up our Calc I classes. Most of the set up went fine. However on the TA's page when we hit "Up" after using "View Student Progress" utility whe get the following error message. Note: the "Back" button on the brouser works fine. The problem does not exist in the PROF.'s page.

Do you have any idea what the misconfiguration might be?

Thank you, Yavor Markov

This is a bug in WeBWorK. The page can be viewed by Prof's and TA's. However, the up button is only configured to link back to the Prof page (even if a TA is viewing the page). But a TA does not have permission to view the Prof page, hence the error. The work around is simple as you have found, i.e. use the browsers back button.

This has been fixed in WeBWorK .7 which is currently in beta testing at Rochester.
