      Description

      Based on a comment by Ralf Hilgenstock in https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=360398 How can we communicate realistic expectations about the information/predictions that models can create. Analytics is not the fortune tellers glas ball. But some people will think it will do it and have expectations that are not realistic.

      I proposed to add an information message in the insights page of models that are based on previous experiences (not in models based on assumptions)

      I leave the issue open to other suggestions and/or to text proposals.
