Canvas has changed how instructors can make grades visible or hidden to students; previously this was referred to as muted or unmuted. Grades are now either posted (visible to students) or hidden (not visible to students). 

There are two options for grade posting: 

  • Automatically post grades: Grades will be visible to students as soon as they are entered.  
  • Manually post grades: Grades will be hidden by default; instructors will chose when to post grades for each assignment in the gradebook.  

Read a detailed summary of the changes, along with steps you may have to take if students aren’t able to see grades in your course.
