Instructors in an associated course can view locked and unlocked icons in the Index page. However, they cannot manage the existing status of an object.

For locked objects, the individual page displays the locked attributes selected in Course Settings, if any. Instructors in associated courses cannot modify locked objects, so any attributes that are locked cannot be edited.
