If the New Gradebook is enabled in your course, you can post grades in the Teacher app for assignments where student grades have been hidden. Grades can be hidden using a manual posting policy or by manually hiding grades. This lesson displays how to post grades from the Submissions page. You can also post grades when grading student submissions.

Grades can be posted to everyone or only to students with graded submissions. When grades are posted to everyone, students with ungraded submissions will see that their submission does not have a grade on their grades page. When grades are only posted to students with graded submissions, students with ungraded submissions will view an icon on their grades page that indicates grades are still being worked on.

If a manual posting policy is set for an assignment and grades are posted to everyone, the manual posting policy will become inactive and future grades will be posted automatically.

Notes:

  • You cannot manage grade posting policies from the Teacher app.
  • If you make changes to an assignment with hidden grades, the total score as you see it (in both the Gradebook and the student Grades page) will be affected. However, students will not see any changes when they view their Grades page. Once you post the assignment grades, the total grade in the student's view will update accordingly.
  • Grades for anonymous and moderated assignments are hidden by default. Moderated assignments grades cannot be unhidden until final grades have been posted.
  • Posting grades for an anonymous assignment will remove anonymity from the assignment.
  • Students can see peer review comments when assignment grades are hidden. However, students cannot see instructor comments until after the assignment grades are posted.
  • If you post grades for an assignment with varied due dates, all students will receive score results at the same time.
  • Students will not be able to see their quiz responses while quiz grades are hidden.
