      Description

      It is not possible for a student to change their messaging preferences for the new assignment module.

      This is because there is a capability associated with the messaging provider assign_student_notification, which applies at the module level but not at the site level, where messaging settings are set.

      The quick fix is to remove this capability from the provider. This is not ideal, but it is what happens in the 2.2 assignment, forum and lesson. I am also going to create another issue to review the implications of messaging settings at different context levels.

      Replication steps:

      1. Log in as a student
      2. Navigate to Settings > My profile settings > Messages

      Expected result: You should be able to control the provider labelled "Assignment student notifications".

      Actual result: There is no provider listed as "Assignment student notifications"
