Grade assignment but hide result from the student?

Recent research concludes that grading isn't the best facilitator for learning. Actually leaving out the grade makes the student focus more on e.g. the textual feedback from teacher and thereby focusing on learning instead of focusing on numbers on a scale.


Is there a way to create an assignment in Canvas, with grades visible to teacher, but hidden for the student?


Today I'm using rubrics to, in an efficient way, provide detailed feedback - and the resulting points are converted to a GPA scale. Maybe I could just make a custom GPA scale with only two levels of outcome: "not acceptable" and "feedback given", but I still want to keep a local score not visible for the students?


Kind regards,
