I know there's been a lot of activity lately in anonymous grading, which is great! However, I've searched around for this idea and I don't see it specifically, so I'm submitting it here for discussion/upvoting.
Right now one limitation of anonymous grading comes when a grader needs to bulk download all students' submissions. I know that it was changed to remove the student's name from these files, but now there isn't a tie to which specific student each submission belongs to. I propose that the randomly-assigned student number (Student 12) be appended to each submission so the grader can track which file belongs to which person.
