By default, student names are shown in the Gradebook. However, you can hide student names in the Gradebook to remove bias in grading. Hiding names also hides secondary IDs. Because hiding names is a Gradebook setting and not a course setting, this feature does not guarantee that all assignments will be graded anonymously.
This feature hides names for all students displayed in the Gradebook. By default, only active students are shown. Inactive and concluded enrollments are not shown of the Gradebook unless enabled in the Gradebook settings.
Note: Hiding names in the Gradebook is a separate option from hiding names in SpeedGrader.
