Setting assignments to use a grading scale lets you easily track who's submitted what, and gives you an at-a-glace report.

Set-Up: Set Your Assignment to use a Grading Scale

In the assignment settings  (Edit > Edit Settings), set the Grade to Scale: Received or Not.  You can also create your own grading scale if something different would be more useful to you.
