It is possible to hide a finished assignment from your students on the course page, but yet still allow them to still see the grade. You need to move the assignment to a topic area at the bottom of your course page. This solution is a bit quirky, but it works. Note: the assignment is also still accessible from the gradebook entry.
Here are the details:
- Turn editing on
- You need to have an extra topic area, so if you don't have one- scroll to the bottom of the page and click the plus sign
- Move any assignment(s) you do not want displayed on the course page into this topic area to hide it, then click the minus sign at the bottom of the page to remove the topic from the course page. These activities will now be displayed as "Orphaned Activities" to the instructor, but hidden from view for the students.
- The students can no longer see the assignment on the course page, but they can see their grade with a link to the assignment in the gradebook.
