      Description

      It is not difficult to figure out which students have submitted and which have not to a assginment with blind marking enabled.

      1. Teacher can go through course logs which will tell the teacher exactly who has submitted and who has not
      2. Teacher can go through course participation report and figure out which student has submitted and which one has not.

      Although it might be a bit of hassle to know exactly which submission belongs to which student, still worth investigating
