I am working with a school to set up their School AGOO for a GIS program. There will be privacy questions in upcoming meetings and I want to make sure I understand - the teachers need to be administrators to see their students my content page correct? And that means they will be able to see the my content page of anyone in the AGOO correct?

Thanks in advance!

1. the teachers need to be administrators to see their students my content page correct?

  - Not necessarily. A custom role could allow this functionality without elevating teachers to administrators.

2. And that means they will be able to see the my content page of anyone in the AGOO correct?

 - This is true. If a teacher with a custom  (e.g. "SuperTeacher") or administrator role can see their students contents pages, then they could see any account's contents pages in that organization.

3. If the teacher requires that students share their work to a (class) group that means the students in the class can see each other's answers right? 

- Groups don't make good private dropboxes.  Group members can view all items posted to a group.

Other option: If teacher privileges cannot be elevated to see all students my content pages, then consider making a group for each teacher-student pairing.  This takes more time initially of course to set-up but the workflow is faster for teachers to grade assignments throughout the year. This also ensures more privacy than either a class group or giving teachers elevated privileges provides.

In this scenario, Ms Smith (teacher) might have 150 groups.  She might use a group name like "Hr1-BAnderson". This group would contain Ms Smith and Billy Anderson (a first hour student).  Billy would share assignments to this group and only Ms Smith could see the work.

Hi Allison

I hope all is well with you and your family.

If the teacher is the AGOO “Owner” or Administrator then they can see all content created in the AGOO.

Thanks Randy!

My goal: I want to make sure the teachers can check their students work but not let the students in the class see each other's answers.

My issue: I have encountered resistance to letting multiple teachers in the school become administrators.

New question: If the teacher requires that students share their work to a (class) group that means the students in the class can see each other's answers right?
