How to hide course items or tests from your students

Navigate to the course page which contains the items you would like to hide. Then, click the Actions button and select “Turn editing on”. To right the of the item, locate and click the “Edit’ menu. Then click the “Hide” option.

Hiding an item will remove it from students’ view and prevent students from accessing or completing the hidden resource or activity. You may apply the “Hide” setting to any individual item.

To hide an entire topic full of content from students, simply select the Hide option from the settings menu for the desired topic. Instructors may still access any hidden items as needed without ever revealing them to students.

To show any hidden item in the course, simply turn editing back on for the page displaying the hidden item, click the Edit menu, and select the “Show” option to make it available again.
