Is there a way to mute assignments without muting the current grade total?
Hi Mark Wiest - The total is NOT muted from the student's perspective. While Canvas uses the same "mute" symbol in your view of the total column, it is more to warn you that the score you see will not be seen by the student because an assignment is muted. (See screen capture below, which displays the message when hovering over the icon in the TOTAL column):
On the other hand, the student WILL see the running total for all non-muted assignments just fine. The screen capture below shows the third student's view of this same course:
So even though MY current view shows the student earning a 67, since the final assignment that she received 20 points on is still muted, the student sees the total as 47 since it does not count the muted assignment.
I hope this helps!
