This article will show you how to mute an assignment in the Gradebook. When you mute an assignment, it will not send out grade change notifications or any new instructor comments until the assignment is unmuted. A muted assignment displays a red "muted" icon on the student Grades page so that students know the assignment is muted. Students will be unable to view their grades, including grade and score changes, submission comments, and curving assignments, until the assignment is unmuted.
- If you make changes to a muted assignment, the total score as you see it (in both the Gradebook and the student Grades page) will be affected. However, students will not see any changes when they view their Grades page. Once you unmute the assignment, the total grade in the student's view will update accordingly.
- If you unmute an assignment with varied due dates, all students will receive score results at the same time.
