If using Grades in Canvas, your students will be able to see their course total grade by default.  If you would like to hide the total grade from students, follow the instructions below.

  1. Go to Settings at the bottom of the left-hand menu
  2. Select the first tab (of the 5 across the top): Course Settings
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the More Options link
  4. Place a checkmark in the box to the left of “Hide totals in student grade summary”
  5. Click the Update Course Details button to save your change
  6. To confirm the change:
    1. Go back to the Home page and click Student View at the far right
    2. Click Grades from left-hand menu
    3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and notice that no Total Grade is available (if you use weighted assignment groups, those totals are also hidden)
