Jump to solution

How can I enter annotations in student papers in the SpeedGrader but hide the feedback until all of the papers have been reviewed?

Hi  @jlivingston ,

The "mute assignments" feature is what you need to turn on. Once muted, students cannot see grades or feedback on assignments until you unmute it. Here are a couple guides on how to turn it on (or off) from Speedgrader or the Gradebook:

Okay, I spoke with Tier 1 Canvas support, and we tested out a few things. Apparently whenever you post a new comment in the Speedgrader, all comments become visible (at least for that student) even if the grade has previously been set to “hidden.” However, if after posting your comment, you then manually “Hide” the column once again (despite already being in “hidden” status), it then hides the comments from students.

We tested it out in a demo course, and this workflow seems to work. It’s convoluted, but it does seem to work.

Unfortunately, this no longer appears to work in the new Gradebook. Grades are hidden but not annotations or sidebar comments. Is there a way to hide the entire assignment (grades/annotations/comments) in the new Gradebook?

Need to be able to do this for a subset of students in a course section that are already "grouped" by instructor within a course with multiple instructors.

The best way to set up a single assignment with different settings for different groups is to duplicate the assignment, and assign the duplicate to the second group of students.  So group 1 (or section 1) is assigned to the first copy, that isn't hidden, and group/section 2 is assigned to the second copy, which is.
