[LON-CAPA-admin] Checking on a student complaint (lost grades)

To see the detailed activity of what the student did
1. Click on Main Menu -> Manage course users -> List and Modify Multiple
Course Users. On the next page, click on Display List of Users.
2. In the box that says "Behavior of clickable username link for each user,
select the "View a user's recent activity", then click on the username of
the student.

You will then get a list of everything the student has viewed/posted, time
etc. It does take some time for the list to show up and the info is a bit
cryptic so reading it takes a bit of "guesswork".

Hope that helps.

> What I've done so far:

> give a "play by play" record of student activity?
> Any help on what else to look at?
