1. Showing/Hiding grades for Grade Items 

The Show/Hide option for Grade Items allows you to bulk release the grades for an course assessment, such as an assignment or quizYou may wish to hide the grades until you or your TAs have completed marking. When you’re ready to release them, you’ll need to make the grades for that item visible to students. There are two ways of showing/hiding grades in Brightspace, which are outlined in the instructions below.

NOTE: If you are hiding a grade item that is associated with an online activity in Brightspace (e.g. Assignment, Quiz, Discussion), the grade will still be visible to students if you have published grades within the activity. Students can access the grades for a hidden grade item if they navigate to the activity itself. To hide grades within an activity, you will need to hide the activity (assignment, quiz, etc.) from students, or save the grades as a draft until you are ready to publish.

How can I tell if a grade item is hidden from students?

A hidden grade item will appear with a crossed-out eye icon (see example below)
