You may want to include the type of ANGEL item in a content item's name. For example, if you create a drop box, you may want to name it "Drop Box Assignment 1." This will help students new to the environment understand what the icons stand for.

If an icon is grayed out, it means the item is hidden or unavailable (see hidden assessment icon in the above table). For example, you may have specified that the "max attempts" students have to take an assessment is one. After a student takes the assessment, the assessment icon will appear to that student with no color, indicating it is no longer available to him or her.
