Filter the list to show students with First name and/or Last name that begin with the letters selected; select All for either name to remove the filter. You can also filter the list in the Options section based on submission status. For example, clicking M and All will show Mark Able, Mary Johnson, Melanie Jones, and Michael Smith; clicking M and J will show Mary Johnson and Melanie Jones.



Applying the name filters before applying a filter from the Options section will display students who match both filters.
