How Do Students Update Their Display Name?

Symptom: Student names are showing up as numbers and letters

Symptom: I don't know who's who when I'm looking at assignments

Student display names are what you see when you view their work. They are not what students use to log in.

 Teacher Changes Display Name

If there are just one or two students who need display name updates, teachers can do this from their dashboard. If there's an entire class, it may be faster and easier for students to update their display names themselves.
