How do I hide the box and whisker plot (grade distribution) graphs from students?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

Instructors can hide the box and whisker plot (grade distribution) graphs to keep students from viewing the summary statistics of the class and figuring out each others' grades. By default, the whisker graph is on.

This is what students will see when the grade distribution graphs are hidden from their view. Usually, they would see scoring details and a box and whisker plot graph once they clicked to view the details [1].
