How Do I hide (and unhide) student grades?

In Canvas, by default, all grades assigned to students are immediately available to the student in their Grades tool.

Instructors may want to hide grades from all of the students and unhide them when they are finished grading an Assignment. 

To hide all assignment grades in a course by default, set a Grade Posting Policy. See How do I select a grade posting policy for a course in New Gradebook?

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.
