How to hide points for an assignment from students?

Community Novice

I often want students to complete assignments that I can use as formative checks or as step one of a larger project. They are submitting something, so I can't choose "not graded" when setting up the assignment since this gets rid of the submission options. However, when I set it to 0 points and a complete/incomplete grade, students see that it doesn't have value and sometimes choose not to do it. I want to de-emphaszie the importance of grade negotiations in my class and put the focus on learning. Being able to hide to point value of assignments would really help me do this, so students stop viewing anything not factoring into the final grade as "optional." Thank you!
