Students showing up as numbers

Why are my students showing up as numbers instead of names in one of my assignments when I go to grade them?

This appears to happen when students join your class through a registered SSO login, such as when using their existing Google or Facebook account. I don't understand why Canvas devs thought the numbers should be put into student name, when clearly they have access to the name. Clicking on the numbers pops up a sidebar that shows the name, but this doesn't appear anywhere while grading, which is a huge issue.

Students can update their profile as a workaround, but there should be a LMS wide update to look for this and fix it.

Please don't mark this response as the answer, because I consider this a problematic, unresolved issue.

howart3@collierschools.com‌ this may be due to settings such as anonymous grading or hidden names in SpeedGrader in the course. Please see How do I hide student names in SpeedGrader?  for an explanation of how this works
