How to Hide and Release Quiz Scores

The purpose of this article is to explain how to hide quiz scores from users in the Brightspace learning environment until you are ready to release them.

Hide Attempt Scores

If you want to hide attempt scores from students until everyone has completed the exam, you must change the default submission view before students take the exam. The default view will need to be changed for every quiz you create; it is not saved by Brightspace.

Step 1

From either the New Quiz or Edit Quiz page, click Submission Views
