Text truncating makes it impossible to read section name

When using the section filter, the section name is truncated in the middle, making it impossible to differentiate between sections.

Our section naming scheme follows this format:

[department & course number] [section & section number] [instruction mode]

For example "CHEM 1AL DIS 101 (In Person)"

The first, and third part is typically identical for all the sections that compose a course. The enhanced gradebook truncates the middle of the section name, obscuring the only unique part of this data and presenting the instructor with a list of items that look identical:

Even if you mouse over the truncated name, it's not possible to read the full section name.

This filter should be modified to display the full name of the section to accommodate all section naming schemas.

HI, @milesl! Wanted to follow up with you to let you know that the work to show the full filter on hover is making good progress and is expected to be deployed with our production deploy on 04.26.23.
