Loophole in anonymous grading

    Choosing anonymous grading in SpeedGrader generally works well.  It causes the names of the students to be omitted from the grading-window frame.  But there's a loophole:  The grading-window frame still indicates which papers came in "LATE".  Since we receive notifications of which particular students' papers come in late, and since it's likely (in my experience) that only a couple of papers will come in late, having this information comes close to indicating whose paper I'm looking at (or: which of two students' papers I'm looking at).  It seems to me that it would be better to suppress this information about which papers were late from the grading frame, since we can see it in the gradebook and then adjust the grades as needed.  Alternatively, that could be a setting we could adjust.  #anonymous&moderated
