Do you have specific items in your course that you are not quite ready for students to see? Want to hide an assignment or discussion or quiz?
As an instructor, you can publish or unpublish an assignment in a course. Unpublished assignments are invisible to students and excluded from grade calculations. You can manage the state of all assignments on the Assignments Index Page, or you can manage each assignment individually.
Note: If you use Modules in your course and add an Assignment to a Module, please be aware that the state of the Module overrides the state of all module items.
