Is there any way to deal with the situation where a student changes their name mid-semester?
This happens from time to time, often because a student gets married and changes their last name, and for trans students changing their first name.
When a name change is filed with our registrar, the student's user ID and email address are changed accordingly. This results in a new account being created in WeBWorK under the new name, and any work that was completed prior to the name change gets left out of the grade passback. Can the two accounts be merged somehow?
