If you hide an assignment from students, it will not appear on students' LaunchPad home page unless you make it visible to them. While you are creating quizzes or working on assignments, you may wish to hide them from student view. On your LaunchPad home page, a hidden item will appear light gray in color.

You can hide a resource or make it visible in two ways.

The quick way

If you're on the LaunchPad home page, hover your cursor over the resource and click Assign. From the Manage Assignment window, tick Visible to Students if you want to make it visible or untick it if you want to hide it. As soon as you check/uncheck the box, the assignment will automatically become hidden/shown.


The advanced way

For more advanced visibility options, from the LaunchPad home page, hover your cursor over the resource and click More Options and Edit, then select Settings. At the bottom of the Settings tab, under Visibility, you’ll see three options:

  • Visible to students
  • Hide from students
  • Hide from students until date, which will display a calendar so that you can select the date on which you wish the assignment to become visible to students

After selecting an option, click Save.
