Currently only students are able to see the status indicator buttons to the right of their assignments, both from the Assignment Center, and the Assignments tab in their class. 

When the student sees a "To Do" status, this means they're able to change the status of the assignment:
  • To Do
  • In Progress
  • Completed
These Status options are hard coded, and cannot be added/edited/deleted.

These Status options are only available for Assignments, including Drop Box Assignments. Students cannot change the status for Discussions, or Assessments.

Assessments will show a "Take" status, when the student still needs to take the Assessment.

A Discussion will show a "To Do" status, when the student has not submitted their Discussion.

Submitted assignments will show a "Submitted" status, and this cannot be changed by the student.

Graded assignments will show a "Graded" status, and this cannot be changed by the student.

Although the Status shows as a button, for some statuses, there is no functionality in place when clicking the status button.
