      Description

      If a teacher creates a new assignment, the setting 'Require that students accept the submission statement' is available even when an admin has not entered a submission statement (with "Require that students accept the submission statement" left as default no). This is confusing for the teacher, since if they set it to Yes, then no submission statement is shown to students.

      A possible solution would be to have a default submission statement, such as "I certify that this is my own work." or similar.
