From what I've seen everyone who's status was "assessment in progress" was changed to "Further Assessment" which may mean it wasn't manually moved along or looked at. Could have been because of a system update, but who knows!A statement modification that shows activity on the account on behalf of Immi, it means more then nothing and is a sign of forward processing of your application.
