      Description

      Given I create a new course
      And I enrol a user in that course as a student
      And I create an assignment which is due in the next three days
      And I run cron
      When I view Site administration => Analytics => Analytics Models
      And I select that user from the dropdown in "Upcoming activities due"
      And I open the "Actions" menu
      Then I should see options to acknolwedge the prediction, or mark it as not useful

      Right now these actions are:

      Acknowledged
      Not useful
      

      However it isn't really clear what these mean. There is no explanation of these terms, and they don't make good grammatical sense. At the very least we should update them to something like:

      Acknowledge
      Mark as not useful
      

      These same items are also visible from the User profile => Analytics => Insights and their meaning is equally confusing there where students haven't a clue what they relate to. If a student marks something as "Not useful" will this have a knock-on effect to the value of future predictions? In which case the lack of explanation or meaning to the options has a negative impact on the future usefulness of the analytics as a whole.
