How do I restrict the viewing of quantitative data in a course?
If allowed by your admin, you can restrict the view of quantitative data. When selected, this setting limits the view of new courses' quantitative (numeric) grading data. Students and observers only see qualitative data, which includes letter grades and comments.
Points are converted to a letter grade and points possible are hidden. All other grading information is visible.
- If the course does not have a custom grading scheme, the Default Canvas Grading Scheme is used.
- This setting does not change anything for existing courses. The quantitative data restriction checkbox is for all new courses created in the account after the setting is enabled.
- When the setting is enabled, Admins, Instructors, and TAs can still see quantitative data.
In the Course Details tab, locate the Quantitative Data Options. To restrict students and observers from viewing quantitative data, click the Restrict view of quantitative data checkbox.
By default, the Restrict view of quantitative data checkbox is not selected, meaning students an observers can view numeric data as well as letter grades and comments.
To retain this default for the course, do not select the checkbox.
Note: The quantitative data restriction checkbox is for all new courses created after the setting is enabled.
