Bug ID: 62735
           Summary: Special:Student profile lists articles based on the
                    logged in user, not the student
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: EducationProgram
       Web browser: ---
   Mobile Platform: ---

The student profiles at Special:Student/USERNAME have a section that is
supposed to list the articles being worked on by that student. However, what
gets displayed (including the input box to add an article) is based on the user
who is logged in, not the user whose profile is being viewed.

When a profile is viewed while logged out, no articles appear at all. If a user
is logged in, viewing a profile will show what appears to be the subset of
articles they are working on *for the classes in which the profiled student is
enrolled*. The "Add an article" button will add articles *for the logged in
user* rather than the student, but only if that user is enrolled in one of the
same courses as the profiled student.

No controls (such as course deletion, or adding articles) are necessary on the
student profile page, and it should simply display the articles that student is
working on (and which course that article is for).

Alternatively, it might make sense to simply disable the student profile page,
since it is not very useful. (Ad, do you have any objections to that?)
