Has anyone else seen the following behaviour and what are you thoughts?
Note that the following table seemed easier to explain that writing a story!!!
Create a quiz + show it to students
|Quiz activity displayed||Quiz grade item is displayed||This is good!|
Hide the quiz on the main course page
|Quiz activity hidden||Quiz grade item is hidden||this is good!|
|Show the quiz again||Quiz activity displayed||Quiz grade item is displayed||good again!|
|Hide the quiz grade item in the gradebook (without altering the quiz activity)||Quiz activity still displayed||Quiz grade item is hidden||good...|
|Hide the quiz activity on the main course page (without altering the quiz grade item)||Quiz is hidden||Quiz grade item is still hidden||this is good too!|
|Show the quiz activity on the main course page (without altering the quiz grade item)||Quiz activity now displayed||Quiz grade item now displayed||NOT GOOD!|
I believe the grade item should remain hidden if specifically set to hidden - even when the actual activity is shown. I've tested this a number of ways including having the gradebook item within a hidden gradebook category AND settings specific "hidden until" dates in the grade item settings and get the same results. Also when the activity is shown on the main course page the dates within the grade item's settings are removed.
I wonder if others are finding this and agree that if a grade item has been hidden it should remain hidden no matter what the activity's state is?
