Sort students by last name

Is it possible to sort students by last name? It's taking me twice as long to check off their assignments because I have to scroll back and forth to make sure I found everyone by first name.

I don't think it is, sorry. Hopefully one of the Duolingo staff will see your post, and will treat this as a feature request.

I would love this feature! I side-stepped it a bit by having my students enter their names as Last Name First Name.

I agree. It takes awhile to check off students.

I would also like this option, seems very odd that it's not the default sorting option.

I, too, would like this feature.

I think until they put 2 fields in for first and last names, it won't happen. Right now it's just Full Name.

Sorting students by LAST name would be a very needed feature!!

Grading also takes me so much extra time because of the lack of this feature. PLEASE ADD THIS!!! Thank you!
