      Description

      Whilst the grant extension feature works with blind marking (in that you can grant an extension to "Participant X") to all intents and purposes it doesn't work as there is no way for a member of staff to actually identify a student to grant the extension to.

      We would not want to "trust" the student in saying they are a given participant without being able to actively confirm this.

      There are a few other processes that are affected by this (e.g. MDL-37772: you need to identify the student to make a reasonable adjustment).

      It would be good if there was a way that a capability could be used to define staff members that are not blinded. This should probably be mutually-exclusive to the ability to grade a student.
