Grades permissions

The Grades tool is available within any org unit other than the main Organization unit. Because multiple org units can share the same grade categories and items, such as a course that has several different sections, the Grades tool has security checks based on sections.

Users are only visible in the sections that they are enrolled in when viewing by section in the Grades tool. However, if the user's role has the Access all course sections permission, the user can still view all users in all settings.
