    Hello,
    I am going to be teaching a class in the fall and in preparation I am trying to build a site based on WordPress that allows users (students) to log in and see their grades, assignments, etc. Is there a way to do this with WordPress, or should I look to something more like Drupal? I know WordPress pretty well which is why I want to use it. Any tips would be great.
    Thanks,

    1. You can make the settings that says, "the people have to login in order to comment"

    2. Then make one post called "grades" and in that post, you yourself make the first comment, and in that comment write down all the grades and scores.

    3. since people have to login in order to comment, they will not be able to see the first comment unless they register and login.

    Similarly, you can create another post for assignments and do the same trick.

    This is just a quick and easy way of doing it.

    Thanks

    I am not so sure about this one. If logging in is a requirement for comments that applies only to the commenting but you can still see all the comments...

    Does it matter if students see other students grades? I know I'd find it a breach of my privacy if everyone knew my grade.

    Thanks for all the comments,
    I am hoping to have each student have their own section so that other students can't see each others grades. However I could get tricky and use the last 4 of their social or something instread of their names.

    Ideally though I'd like to have each person be able to log in to their section. I may need to mix and match WordPress and PHPbb or something to pull it off.
    Thanks again,

    Oops. Sorry. It was my mistake.

    Thanks Moshu for pointing it out.
