Show / hide Grade Centre columns

1. Introduction

One of the key features of Grade Centre is that you use it to determine whether or not assignment columns are shown (students can see their marks) or hidden (students can't see their marks).

How do I hide columns from students?

For most Grade Centre columns, you can click the action link at the top of the column and click Hide from students. The action link is a circle with an arrow pointing down.

Action Link example

Note, the visibility of assignment columns is tied to the assignment settings. If you make any changes to a Blackboard or Turnitin assignment, make sure to also check Grade Centre. 

How can I tell if a column is hidden from students?

When a column is hidden from students, a red line icon will appear at the top, next to the column name. This means that the data is not currently visible to students via any channels.

2. Show / hide columns to / from students

You need to hide Grade Centre columns until you're ready to release marks / feedback.
a. Click the action link (down arrow) next to the title of the column you want to hide from students.
b. Click Hide from Students (on/off)
c. Columns hidden from students display a black circle / red line next to the column title.


3. Hide the Total column from students

Grade Centre contains a Total column which adds up marks for any other columns set to Include this Column in Grade Centre Calculations.

Based on feedback, Grade Centre’s Total column is now hidden from students by default in most modules. However, we recommend that you always check Grade Centre settings due to the manual nature of this process.

a. In Grade Centre, click the action link to the right of the Total column.

b. Click Edit Column Information.

c. Scroll down to the Options section, then change the Show this Column to Students setting to No.

d. Click Submit.

4. Hide columns from Instructors

You can hide columns from instructors (including yourself). You might do this if there are assignment columns you’re no longer using and you want to tidy up Grade Centre.

Important: This doesn't hide columns from students, unless you've already followed the instructions in section 2.
a. Click the action link (down arrow) next to the title of the column you want to hide from instructors.

b. Click Hide from Instructor View.
c. The column is now hidden from your view.

5. Show columns to Instructors

a. To re-show a hidden column, hover your mouse over Manage and click Column Organisation.
b. Columns hidden from instructors are greyed out.
c. Under the Not in a Grading Period section, tick the box/es next to the column/s you want to re-show.

d. Hover your mouse over Show/Hide and click Show Selected Columns.
e. The columns are once again visible in Grade Centre.
