Conflict with "No Submission" Assignment & "Submit" Module Requirement?

Some assignments in Canvas allow for "No submission" or "on paper" meaning the student doesn't have to submit anything electronically for the assignment, but there is still a spot for a grade. (Particularly useful for our Technical College that uses rubrics for procedural pass-offs)


If I add a requirement of "Submit the assignment" to the assignment within a module, it appears that if the setting of "no submission" or "on paper" is selected, that even if I have entered a manual grade into the grade book, because the student hasn't submitted something, they cannot unlock the next phase.


I have seen Kona Jones's work-around of putting EX into the gradebook to bypass a requirement-- that was helpful. Watched this video: 09.07.2017-12.12.09 

Should I use "score at least" instead of "submit" as the requirement? I want all the items within the modules to have a requirement of some kind -- we have had issues in the past of students thinking they're farther ahead than they are, and I was hopeful that the "submit" requirement would allow me to do that without setting a minimum score requirement.
