According to the support materials only the author and section instructor can see the journal entries. However I'm finding that teaching assistants can see it too.
IS there anyway of changing this without having to make assistants into students?
Yes, the Teaching Assistants can see the journals I intended to be private between students and myself as instructor!So I had to abort my use of journals and use Mail instead, but I would much prefer to use journals.
I enquired about this more than a year ago and was told that "it is by design that teaching assistants have close to the same set of viewing privileges as instructors due to the nature of the roles being so close. There is already an enhancement request in the system to exclude TA’s from viewing private journals – development reference BER-4291. Unfortunately no way to tell at what point in the future this might be included in Vista".
I am still waiting expectantly!
