Assignment View - 4 tabs: All, Graded, Not Graded, Turned In but Not Graded
When in the specific assignment view, there is a tab "To grade (23)". This number is just showing the number of students that haven't been graded (not the students that have actually turned in the assignment and need to be graded). From a workflow standpoint, when I go into an assignment to grade it, I am more interested in first addressing the students that have actually turned in the assignment. So here's my suggestion: The "To grade (#)" tab should be re-named to "Not graded (#)". And there should be a third tab that is "To grade (#)" or "Turned In (#), which only includes the students that have turned in the assignment and have not been graded. And that 3rd tab should actually be the default tab that shows up first when you go into the assignment. Finally, there should be a 4th tab "All" that just shows all the students. You can't see all students in the current configuration once at least one student has been graded.
This is all about the tabs matching the REASON why you are going into an assignment. Usually it's one of four reasons: 1) to see who turned in the assignment so you can grade them; 2) to make sure any student that doesn't have a grade yet has a grade, even if its marking a zero because they didn't turn it in; 3) to get a quick overview of the grades for all students on an assignment; or 4) to re-look at students you've already graded.
Please please, pretty please improve this.

I agree, I would also love to see a prompt for students to confirm that they have reviewed feedback by forcing them to "complete" a graded assignment so that as a teacher, I know that they have seen the grade a feedback!
