I am currently working on a design (for a school/teacher app) that displays information about students. Two different views are offered to the user: tile and table view.
The argument among people on the design review team (management people mostly) is that both these views should fundamentally provide the user with the same exact information.
My understanding in providing different views to a user is not only to just have a different view of them but to also make best use of each view. As such, I am inclined to not necessarily show exactly the same info in both views.
The tile view would show more descriptive info about the student while the table view would be displaying mainly the high level info given that you are able to view more students at a time on the screen. So, the table view would be mostly used as a high level comparison of all the students, where the tile view would enable to teacher to focus on one student at a time.
What are your views on this? Are there any reference for these kind of situations? Any opinions?
Added a screenshot as an example. (Don't mind the visual, that's in progress). So the table presents a more summarized information for the alert column while the tile view gives some more description. Both the tile and table row are clickable to drill into more details about the student.
