New Analytics Filter - Identify/Differentiate Sections, Students, Assignments

    In the drop-down filter of New Analytics there is no way to identify what is a Section, Student or Assignment. It currently displays as a single list with no way of telling what each list item is (see example below).


    This idea proposes that headers are added to the New Analytics filter drop-down list as per similar functionality available throughout Canvas (see example below from the Assign to drop-down list in Assignment Settings).



    This change would allow users to quickly select comparable filters without having to identify these separately prior to using the functionality. It would also allow staff to be able to differentiate between sections and assignments that may have similar names, this would be particularly beneficial to users who have set up sections for grading assignments that have corresponding section names.
