How do I hide or post assignment grades in SpeedGrader?

If your course has enabled the New Gradebook, you can hide or post assignment grades from SpeedGrader. You can also hide grades or post grades from the New Gradebook.

This lesson describes how to hide or post grades for an assignment that already has student submissions. If you want ensure grades are automatically hidden or posted, you can set a posting policy for an assignment or set a posting policy for a course.

When assignment grades are hidden, students will be unable to view their grades, including grade and score changes, instructor submission comments, Canvas DocViewer comments, and curved grades for the assignment. Students can still see and submit the assignment and will be informed on the student grades page that assignment grades are hidden.

When assignment grades are posted, you can select to post grades to everyone or post to students with graded submissions. When the Everyone option is selected, the Visibility icon will be removed from the Grades page for all students for this specific assignment.

If your course does not have the New Gradebook enabled, you can mute an assignment from Speedgrader.

Notes:

  • If you make changes to an assignment with hidden grades, the total score as you see it (in both the Gradebook and the student Grades page) will be affected. However, students will not see any changes when they view their Grades page. Once you post the assignment grades, the total grade in the student's view will update accordingly.
  • Anonymous and moderated assignments are muted by default. Moderated assignments cannot be unhidden until final grades have been posted.
  • Students can see peer review comments when assignment grades are hidden. However, students cannot see instructor comments until after the assignment grades are posted.
  • If you post grades for an assignment with varied due dates, all students will receive score results at the same time.
  • Viewing the Total Column in the Gradebook may be restricted when multiple grading periods are enabled.
  • Students will not be able to see their quiz responses while quiz grades are hidden.
