RESTful API Calls for ILC's
Two new RESTful API calls have been created to provide an easier way for Admins to gather information regarding ILC's. The first call, when passed Course ID's, will return all session information as well as all active schedule/class information. The second call, when passed a User ID, will return all ILC ID, session enrollments, and possible session enrollments available for active ILC enrollments. 

The RESTful API Help document will be updated with more information once available.

User Answers Report Enhancements
Both the "Users Answers Report", and the, "User Answers Report" have been merged and renamed to, "Answers Report". Admins can now display all the results from a specific Assessment. Questions can be filtered by Learner, allowing Admins to see Answer details for specific Users within the report. This also applies in reverse where Learner details can be seen for specific questions that have been answered. A Question Type column has been added to the report to display the full question, providing context for Admins viewing the report. A Question Summary modal has been added to the report to display the correct response for easy reference where the question is not a Free Form Inquiry type question. It is now also possible to schedule and share this report.

Questions Report Enhancement
A refinement filter has been added to the Question Answers report to allow Admins the ability to differentiate between current and historic results, and remove the Questions Report altogether. A new "Question Type" column was also added to differentiate between the kinds of questions asked, along with a column that provides the percentage of responses that correlate to a given response. 



Courses Report Enhancement
A new "Created By" column has been added to the Courses Report. It provides the name of the Admin that has created the course. Please note that, "N/A", may still appear in some cases (e.g., where an  Admin has been deleted).
