API: Is there a way to request only ungraded submissions?

I am building an external tool that helps teachers and TAs coordinate who is grading what in classes with hundreds of students. The way I've currently been getting ungraded submissions is by requesting all submissions for an assignment and then iterating through that list and looking for submissions without scores.

 

I've run into some trouble however, because since we have so many students in the course, each assignment has hundreds of submissions, and I'll have to use pagination in order to get all of the data I need to do it this way. This seems like an unreasonable amount of API requests to make over and over again, (roughly 40 each time my tool refreshes).

 

Is there a method in the API that returns only submissions that do not have scores?
