How can one unpublished a discussion once some students have submitted posts. I made a mistake and want to unpublish it... so it does not show up in the grades.
is muting a work around. will it effect the grade.
You can't unpublish it, but you could switch it from a graded discussion to a non graded discussion to get it out of your gradebook. Muting only keeps students from seeing a grade and your feedback from an assignment, it doesn't prevent them from seeing the assignment or seeing it in the gradebook. In addition it will show up forever in your gradebook as the final course grade isn't really the grade because of a muted assignment. Probably just better to flip it to a non graded discussion.
