Hiding Final Scores

This guide details the steps involved in ensuring that the final assessment grade item and the overall calculated grades within a subject are not displayed to students. For further information on how to set up your Gradebook please refer to this guide.

Note: That unless you have ticked the option to automatically release your final grades (which is off by default), the release of these grade items is a manual process. Final results are processed via MyResults.

Hide Final Assessment Task Score

These steps detail how to hide the final assessment task score from students from within the Grades.

  1. Click Grades on the NavBar
  2. Click the Manage Grades tab
  3. Click the dropdown arrow to the right of the final grade item for the subject (e.g. Assessment Task 3)
