Can Students Write Private Posts Only Accessible to Instructors?

A student may write a post that is only accessible to instructors only if the student is given the role contributor or author and the instructor has the role of editor or admin for the blog.

If a student has the role of editor or admin, all private posts will be visible to that student.
