If you want to grade assignments without knowing who submitted them, you can hide student names in SpeedGrader for anonymous grading. Hiding student names is done on a per-assignment basis.

Note:

  • Hiding student names through anonymous grading is currently a course feature option. Learn how to manage feature options in the course features lesson. However, if the feature option cannot be disabled, your institution has required this feature in your course.
  • Hiding names in SpeedGrader does not affect names in the Gradebook and must be done separately. Learn how to hide student names in the Gradebook.
