- Text typed on the Assignments page

Needs Grading is helpful:
- for those courses with large numbers of students or gradable items such as Assignments, Tests, etc.
- in determining which Assignments are ready for grading and determining an order in which they need attention.
- can be filtered by Category, Item Name, User, and Date Submitted
