Review Status

The Review Status tool allows instructors to track user review of specific content items. After an instructor turns on the tool for an item, each student tracks their progress. A Needs Review button appears on the item when the user opens it. After reviewing the item, a student selects this button to mark it Reviewed.

If the Review Status tool is on, it is on by default in all courses and is available to all instructors to use within their courses.

If the Review Status tool is turned off, all data is saved. If the tool is made available again, all user entries will appear and be unchanged.
