Hiding and Showing Gradebook (Student View)

Hide and Show Gradebook

Go to “Edit settings” in the “Administration” block on the right-hand side of your course site.


Step 2

Click on “Appearance” to expand the section. Then select “Yes” or “No” from the drop-down menu next to “Show gradebook to students” to show or hide the Gradebook. Click “Save and display”.



Hide and Show Individual Task Scores

Step 1

Go to “Grades” in the “Administration” block on the right-hand side of your course site.

Individual Quiz Activity

Note that this individual grade hide/show function in Gradebook does not work with “Quiz” activities. There is no option to change show/hide in Gradebook for Quizzes.


The quiz activity should be set up to be hidden/shown in the main page, not in the Gradebook.
