Show Students Their Own Activity Logs

Why do this?

"Show activity reports" allows students to view their personal activity reports/logs in your course. These activity reports/logs include date and time stamps for actions such as viewing course materials, submitting Assignments, taking and submitting Quizzes, posting in Forums, etc. Students cannot see the activity reports/logs of anyone else.
