Learn@UW-Madison recently performed maintenance on the Canvas roles, impacting permissions of the "Staff" role.

As a result, the "Staff" role was altered so as to realign its behavior with the specifications laid out in the KB document, Canvas - Course Roles and Permissions. Individuals possessing a "Staff" role will no longer be able to make edits to the gradebook, or review student work submitted for assignments. Instead, for access to grades, other roles should be utilized.
