Allocate markers to specific submissions

Where a course has multiple markers, it is possible for course leaders and editing teachers to allocate individual markers to specific assignment submissions.

This could be used to ensure that subject specialists are assigned to mark questions about their
specialism or where assignments relate to specific projects.

Please note that it is only possible to allocate in this way to Non-editing teacher and Marker roles. Course leaders and editing teachers will see all assignments.
