Unpublishing a module but keeping assignments in the module published

Jump to solution

Hi! I'm wondering if there is an easy way to unpublish a module, yet still keep the assignments in the module published so they will show up in the gradebook. After the midterm, I'd like to unpublish the first eight modules, but when I do that, it removes the assignments in those modules from the gradebook. What I could do is go back manually after I've unpublished the module and re-publish just the assignments in the module. I was wondering if there is an easier, less time consuming way to do that. Thanks!

 @lwelsh1 ,

Welcome to the Canvas Community!!!

I just went through several tests with what you are trying to do.  When I unpublish the Module, the items in the Module stay published, but are no longer accessible to the students.  I also see the assignments in the unpublished Module in my Gradebook.

Thanks for looking at that! Maybe it was just a glitch. I unpublished the module, and I could still see the assignment in the grade book, but a student contacted me and said that the grade for the assignment in the module had disappeared from her grades. I have a rule for those assignments to drop the lowest score, so that was maybe the problem... L

By any chance did you mute the assignment, then forget to unmute it?

I don't think so. Only one student complained, so maybe it was something on her end.
