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. When the grade distribution graph is hidden, students cannot view any aspect of the graph, including the high, low, and mean scores.
