Is it possible for you to create a way for a teacher to reject or send an assignment back to a student. We consistently have students submit a blank document or something that says that they will hand something in 'tomorrow', and basically, all this does is take it off of their overdue list. If we leave a comment, students ignore it, or they don't look at them, so then they don't follow up on the missing work because it is no longer on the overdue list. We tried using the 'incomplete' feature, but that doesn't make the assignment still show up on their overdue list. It just shows in their grades that the assignment is incomplete. Again, it gets ignored. If we could bounce an assignment back to the student with a brief comment about how what they submitted does not meet the requirements, then their overdue list would keep that item until they submit something new.
