How to hide a Grade Centre column on Blackboard

When creating a i) Blackboard Assignment, ii) Turnitin Submission Point or a iii) Blackboard Test, a column in Grade Centre is created. By default this is visible to students, It is necessary to:

  • Manually hide the relevant Grade Centre column in order to prevent inadvertent early marks release
  • Unhide the column on day of marks release

N.B. Please see caveat section below for exceptions to this.

To hide the column:

  • Go to Full Grade Centre on the Bb site
  • Click the chevron next the relevant column, and
  • Toggle the ‘Hide from Students (On/Off)’  option until there is a red line through it.

When there is a red line through the column name, it indicates the column is hidden from students. You may also want to hide the Total column if this is unhidden.
