Moodle 3.2: Hide a Graded Activity/Item in the Gradebook

Applies to: Moodle 3.2.

Hiding a Moodle activity or manually graded item within the Gradebook hides it from the student view in their Gradebook. If the activity is a Moodle activity, students can still access the activity on the course site, but it will not appear in their list of graded activities. A hidden activity/item is still visible to the instructor but the font color will be light grey.

The score of the hidden activity will not be counted in the gradebook total while the activity is hidden. You may choose to hide an activity in the Gradebook until the full class has completed it.

Note: Quizzes do not have a Hide option in the Gradebook. If you do not want students to see their grades, set the Review Option to Not release Grades in the Quiz settings.
