Hi Sharon,

A scripting solution might be one good option.

Here's another (low-tech) solution:

I know of many online instructors that ask for a naming convention in  
the subject line of email submissions. If students don't "put their  
name on their paper", they don't get credit for their work!

Not an elegant scripting solution. However, most students have been  
told to put their names on their papers since they were six years old  
and quickly learned the consequences of turning in anonymous work.

No sexy scripting needed - just personal responsibility.

A thought anyway.
