Click the green arrow beside this drop down list in order to filter the assignments.
To mark an individual assignment look for the title of the assignment in the list of submitted assignments. For example if you named the assignment, Task One, there will be a list of student submissions with the first column being the assignment title and the second column listing the name of the associated student.
Choose the drop down beside the title not the user and choose Review submission. Once you are done marking choose Mark as completed and return to Student from the Save Options and click Save at the bottom of the screen.
