MSL Statuses

The easiest place to learn an MSL's status is in the meeting overview on the observer dashboard and in the Activities tab of the learner's E-Portfolio. If you want to know where the MSL is in its cycle, check its activity status in the overview.

For learner instructions on creating and managing MSLs, go to Adding and Managing MSLs.
For observer instructions on accessing and approving MSLs, see Observer: Measures of Student Learning.
