    If a student uploads a file into the incorrect assignment, there is no way for the student or teacher to delete it and submit the correct file. The students remains in the "Needs Grading" category of SpeedGrader, rather than "Not Submitted" even though there is no submission relevant to the assignment. If the teacher could flag the submission or have it moved back to "Not Submitted" it would notify both student and teacher of the correct status of the assignment. (Student might have received a Comment from the teacher but it still appears to them as turned in. Teacher sees it as Needs Grading or Haven't Been Graded and encounters the wrong submission over and over as teacher goes back to grade late work.) Canvas will probably not give teacher or student the option to delete the wrong submission (another way to solve this but frowned upon by Canvas for integrity issues), but having the ability to change the status of the student's submission would make SpeedGrader more efficient, effective and informative for both the teacher and student.
