      Description

      Currently, when a parent logs into Moodle and clicks on their child's name in the Mentee Block, they are brought to the child's profile page. Their first instinct is to click on "Grade" under Reports (instead of clicking on "Grades" in the Navigation block). The problem is that this "Grade" link does not bring up the child's Overview Report - it brings up the grades for the Front Page only (http://moodleinstance.org/course/user.php?mode=grade&id=1&user=11525). However, if they click on "Grades" in the Navigation block, then they are taken to the Overview Report (http://moodleinstance.org/grade/report/overview/index.php?id=1&userid=11525).

      I don't know the reasoning for the current set up (and there may be a good reason) but I think having that "Grade" link under Reports go directly to a child's Overview Report makes the most sense from a user's perspective, instead of having to go to the Navigation block and click on "Grades".

      I feel it is confusing to have the word "Grade(s)" in two different places that link to two different things. I don't know that parents need a link to the Front Page grades, so I wonder if it can either be moved into the Overview Report, or maybe have two links under Reports: 1 for Front Page Grades, and the other for Overview Report (or Grades Overview is a clearer name).

      I am not a coder, so I don't have any code suggestions, but I posted this tracker in the Moodle forums for input. Thanks!
