When using the gradebook helper to create a new gradebook item from another tool, it would be nice to be able to pass the name of the new gradebook item as a parameter.
As an example, consider the desired assignment creation workflow:
Enter your assignment name and any other assignment details on the "Add Assignment" page
Decide to link this to a new gradebook item, so you click "Create new gradebook item" link on your "Add Assignment" page
The helper should automatically populate the name of the new gradebook item with the same name as your assignment
