Student Name in submission

Hello, I have a student who included his name in his submission; it’s visible in his code and his video (his app’s opening screen has “Such and Such Title” by Student Name). How big of a deal is this? Should I unsubmit and have him re-film his video, or is it fine?


Hi @linda.henneberg,

The reason for the “no names” (or other identifying info) rule is to prevent bias, which readers are supposedly trained to overlook. Having a name in there won’t itself prevent the entry from being scored.

Just to back up what Frank said, it will absolutely be ignored by the reader. It happens all the time.
