"Hiding" grades is not working properly

Jump to solution

Recently, I have discovered that I am no longer able to "hide" my students' grades for either graded discussions or assignments. (I haven't tested this out with quizzes.)

Even when I have both "hidden" my students' grades and set the grading policy to "manual" posting, my students (and I as the "test student") can see the grades I've entered. And, yes, that "eyeball" is crossed out in SpeedGrader.

Something is glitchy. I'm having this issue in all of my Canvas courses.

Am I the only one, or is this a "known issue?" How do I resolve this?

Thanks, @Ron_Bowman.  I realized that there was an issue when a student emailed me about her score for the final exam. I was really surprised that she already knew her score when SpeedGrader still had the crossed out eyeball. Then I realized that the "Hidden" label was missing for her and her classmates' exams.

"Hiding" grades in SpeedGrader has never worked well with rubrics, but for this particular exam, I was just entering a point value.

Hmm....... I see what happened. The hiding of the grades doesn't take effect unless I enter a grade and then again click on "hide" the grades. Setting up SpeedGrader before that first grade gave me the crossed-out eyeball, but not the label "Hidden." 

Again, I still think this is glitchy. It shouldn't take an extra step.

@SusanNiemeyer -

Something definitely seems strange from what you are describing.  If the assignment was originally automatic posting and students had grades, then they continue to show until you hide them.  Same thing if you change from automatic to manual posting, any posted grade must be hidden.  However, after setting to manual, all future grades should be hidden until you post them(it sounds like you are not seeing this behavior). 

I have never had to do the extra step of hiding grades once manual posting for an assignment has been selected.

Hopefully it is some strange glitch that will go away on its own - but something to definitely watch.

Hide/show and manual posting grades are the most confusing and convoluted settings in Canvas, but they refuse to change it.
