If you can't find a name for an assignment that was submitted in Google Drive, first switch to list view.
Now, there should be an Owner column and a Last-Modified Column. Often, one of these contains the student name.
If this does not help you identify student work, or if a name is missing from work that is not in google drive, Contact the teacher as soon as possible to get help. Include as much information as possible so that the teacher can help quickly (samples below). If there is just one student without a name, check the roster to see if you can narrow down who the unlabeled submission belongs to.
It is NOT best practice to add unnamed students to the roster, but if you do not hear back from the teacher by the time you are ready to finish and submit the assignment and you do have the ability to update the roster, we'd rather the unnamed student receive feedback than be skipped. You can add "Student 1" (or similar) to the roster. Be sure to include identifying information (page number in a pdf or first line of writing, for example) at the start of your feedback.
- I apologize for this late notice, but there is one document on the Google Drive that does not have a name on either the document itself or the submission title. Aside from this document, I've received work for all but five students: Marissa Kim, Joey Alvarez, Shanna Bookbinder, Tiara Matthews, and Jenna Harrison. Here's a link to the work: [link]. Can you help me figure out who this belongs to?
- Hello! Sorry to bother, but one of the students turned in work without a name, and I wanted to see if you knew whose it is. The work is titled "REHUGO pt2." Thanks!
- Hi, Essays starting on pages 46 and 72 of the student work PDF seem to be missing names. Could you help me determine who these belong to so that I can identify them on the roster and add them to my grading? Thanks!
