Hide grades preemptively on an assignment

To hide grades from students, prior to grading the assignment, an instructor should change the Post Policy applied to the assignment to Manual Posting.

  2. Hover mouse cursor over the assignment column header
  3. Click three vertical dots that appear on the column header
  4. Select Grade Posting Policy at bottom of the drop-down list
  5. Select Manually from the fly-out menu on the right of the screen
