Canvas gradebook...hiding selected Assignment Group columns

Jump to solution

Does the new Canvas gradebook give the instructor the ability to completely suppress selected columns from the student view? It seems the existing gradebook does not. I've created an assignment group that holds all of my non-graded assignments but, despite the fact there will never be any grades posted in that group, a gradebook column was automatically created with no option to hide it from view. I also utilize a grading system that is not compatible with Canvas' weighting/dropping capabilities and therefore also want to suppress/hide all assignment group averages and prevent those calculated data from appearing in the student view.  Bottom line...the ONLY data I want my students to see are the RAW SCORES, nothing more. Having taught university courses for over four decades it is inconceivable to me that a system such as Canvas would not allow faculty full control over what their students see, or don't see, in the gradebook view. Thanks.

Hi Glen,

In both the old and the New Gradebook, you can hide all the total columns. Here's a procedure for doing it: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12713-415292748 

You cannot hide only the Group Totals - hiding the totals hides ALL the total columns.

Good luck,

Audrey

Kelley and Audrey,
Thanks for your feedback.  I am aware that disabling the course total calculation also disables all assignment group totals.  Problem is, even then the assignment groups show up in the student gradebook view with the 335278_eye.png icon in the score column. In my humble opinion, "hide from view" has a very specific meaning not realized in the Canvas gradebook as currently configured. It's hard for me to understand why a disabled item would still be displayed in the student view. Thanks again.
