Why does a quiz/exam show a grade as soon as a student submits? How do I block this from happening.

I just gave my first exam in Canvas.  As soon as the student submit their exam it showed how many they got correct out of the total number possible.  I still have to do some manual grading so that score is not correct and so it is freaking some students out.  Plus I still need to look at my questions to make sure they were good questions.

It is a very difficult time in class right now, so that showing up right away is not a good motivator for the students.

Hello  @bclark9 ‌, you can set this item to a "Manually Post Grades" item so that students will not see any score until you post the grades for that quiz.  

This is done by clicking the 3 dots next to the assignment/quiz in the gradebook and switching it from Automatically post to Manually post.
