Trouble Keeping the Course Total Hidden

Trouble Keeping the Course Total Hidden
 

We are using Moodle 2.5.1+ (Build: 20130712)

I have a faculty member who wants to hide the category totals from student view, but every time he edits or adds a new grade item to the category, the category total automatically unhides itself.  Does anyone know of a fix?  Thanks for any leads.

Mary Beth,

I haven't had any instructors doing that exactly. I am assuming your instructor is just using the "eye" to hide the total. If so, you might try this:

  • Go to Course grade settings in the Grade administration
  • In the Overview report make sure the Hide totals if they contain hidden items is set at hide.
  • User report makde sure the hide totals if they contain hidden items is set at hide. 
  • Go into the category and put in a hidden grade item. When they are done with this, they can just delete this grade item if they want or reset the settings above to say, Show excluding hidden grade items.

This should hide totals in that category in the reports that students have access to.  It will also hide the course total grade.
