How do I post (and hide) student grades?

By default, grades in Canvas are hidden from students until you decide to manually post them. (This is a change from previous versions of Canvas, which automatically released student grades when they were entered.)

Instructors can post Assignment, Discussion, and Quiz grades from SpeedGrader or the Gradebook.

 

To post grades for an Assignment, Discussion, or Quiz, go to Grades.

In the column of the grades you want to release to students, click the three vertical dots and select Post Grades.

This displays the Post Grades information tray.

If there are no grades or comments on the assignment, the Options menu will display that there are no grades to hide or post. Instead, select Grade Posting Policy and choose to post grades Automatically. For more details, see How do I select a grade posting policy for an assignment in the New Gradebook?

Select posting options.

To post grades and submission comments to all students, select Everyone. An assignment notification will also be sent to all students. Any future grades or comments you enter for this item will be immediately available to students.

To only post grades to students with graded submissions or submissions with comments, select Graded. Only those students who have been graded will be notified, and any grades or comments you later enter for ungraded students will remain hidden until you repeat this process and post them.

You can also choose to only release grades to a single section of your course.

Click Post.

To Hide a Grade for an Assignment, Discussion or Quiz, Go to Grades

In the Column of the Grades you want to hide, click the down arrow and select Hide Grades.

This displays the Hide Grades information tray.

If you have not begun grading the assignment yet, the Hide Grades option will not be available. Instead, select Grade Posting Policy and choose to post grades Manually. For more details, see How do I select a grade posting policy for an assignment in the New Gradebook?

Click Hide.

This will hide any grade for this assignment in any student's gradebook.
