Introduction

Assessors often decide to hide grades and feedback until marking is complete and finalised, and then release them all at once. Although Workflow allows this (and is particularly helpful where there are several multiple markers) it is sometimes quicker to simply hide the grades in the Grader Report until it is time to release them.

Note: Note that using Show/Hide for an Assignment on the course front page has no effect on whether its grades are shown or hidden. The assignment and its grades are entirely independent from each other, so the grades must be show or hidden independently.


The gradebook ones refer to whether a student will be able to see that grade or grade item in their user report. You can have an activity available on the course page for which you would not want the students to know their grade. Also in reverse - an offline activity that is hidden in the course page, but which you want the students to know their grade for.

To hide grades and feedback

  1. To go to the Grader Report, from your Moodle course front page, in its Settings, click Grades.

Turning on editing then clicking the "Show show/hide icons" link will give you the familiar show/hide eye icon next to each grade and at the top of each column. For more information, read

Hidden until

Date before which the grades will be hidden. Usually this date is set to the end of the activity, and the beginning of the grading process.. A typical sequence of events would be:

Event Locked Hidden
Start of activity and participant submissions No Yes
End of activity and beginning of grading/feedback Yes Yes
End of grading/feedback, and release of grades Yes No

Effects of hiding

Hiding simply prevents students from viewing the categories, grade items and grades to which it applies. They appear to admins and teachers, but with a special style that clearly identifies them as hidden.
