      2) Take the assessment as a student/access member
      3) As instructor/maintainer, view 'User Activity Report' for the user you took the assessment as in step 2)
      4) Click the link to take you to the user's submission for the anonymously graded assessment
      5) You can now grade/comment on the 'anonymous' submission, but you know exactly who's submission it is

      Description

      The 'User Activity Report' allows the instructor/maintainer to view submissions by user, and provides a link to the user's submission to facilitate grading and commenting. In the context of an anonymously graded assessment, this link allows the instructor/maintainer to circumvent the anonymity feature.

      See test plan for steps to reproduce

      A solution to this problem is not to render anonymous submissions as a link in the 'User Activity Report' UI, but rather as plain text. There is also an icon beside the plain text name that on hover, produces a tool tip with an explanation of why there is no link for the submission: "This assessment is graded anonymously".
