Hide a Column from Students
Hide a Column from Yourself as an Instructor

Hide a Column from Students

  1. In the Course Management menu, go to the Full Grade Center.
  2. Click on the chevron by the column you want to hide and select Hide from Students (on/off).
  3. A circle with a red line through it will display next to the column name. Students will not see this column in My Grades.
  4. If you want to hide the default Total Column and it has a green checkmark next to it, you will need to take an extra step. The checkmark indicates that this is the external grade, but our system does not use this feature. Choose a column that you will not be hiding and click on the chevron. Select Set as External Grade from the dropdown menu. Now you can hide the Total column by selecting Hide from Students (on/off).
  5. To show a column again, select Hide from Students (on/off).

  1. In the Course Management menu, go to the Full Grade Center.
  2. Click on the chevron by the column you want to hide and select Hide from Instructor View.
  3. You will no longer see this column in the grade center. If you did not hide the column from students first, they will still see it in My Grades.
  4. To see the column again, or to change the visibility of multiple columns at once, go to Manage at the top of the Grade Center.
  5. Select Column Organization from the dropdown menu.
  6. Columns that are hidden from the instructor will appear lighter and italicized with “hidden” in parenthesis.
  7. Check the box next to one or several columns, then click Show/Hide button at the top or bottom of the list. Choose Show Selected Columns to display the column in your instructor view, or Show Selected Columns in All Grade Center Views to display to you and students.

In the snapshot of three columns below, the Weighted Total column is not visible to students. The Total Column is set as an external grade and cannot be hidden until that is reassigned. The Assignment 1 column is visible to the instructor and students, but can be hidden from the dropdown menu.
