When adding requirements to a milestone, you can assign students to submit a project to fulfill the requirement. Projects are added to the student's Folio, however, when setting up the requirement you can define the default privacy setting for student submissions.

By default, requirements are reviewed per the strategy and reviewers defined for the pathway. However, you can designate a specific person to review an individual requirement.
