How to not have a column in the gradebook for assignment groups that contributes 0%

Jump to solution

I have assignment groups that do not contribute to the end grade. So they have a weight of 0% and all their assignments are ungraded. There appear columns for each of these assignment groups in the gradebook overview. Is it possible to remove or avoid them in some way? It makes no sense to have them and they take up valuable screen real estate.

Hello @E3Q 

 

Thank you for contacting Canvas Support. We're sorry to hear you've been experiencing issues with hiding an assignment group from your gradebook. To get right to it, currently there is no option to disable or completely hide a weighted assignment group within the gradebook. We understand that it is set to 0% and the assignments within aren't counting towards the final but there is no current feature or functionality to turn this off or hide it. However, we certainly understand the need and desire to hide assignment groups like this especially if you're not actually counting them. You can hide the assignments within them, but not the actual group.
