Muting Assignments in Canvas

If you use the SpeedGrader in Canvas, you’ve probably noticed that your comments are live as soon as you post them, which might frustrate you if you want all students to get their feedback at the same time. Fortunately, there’s a solution to this: muting the assignment until you’re done posting feedback.

  1. Click on Grades in the left navigation menu.
  2. In the grade spreadsheet, hover your cursor over the assignment you want to mute. You’ll see a button appear in the bottom right corner of that cell.
  3. Click that button, and you’ll see a menu with the mute assignment option. Click Mute Assignment, and students won’t be able to see the feedback until you unmute it.mute assignment
  4. Don’t forget to unmute when you’re done with feedback! Go through those same steps to unmute the assignment.

As always, let Ann or Kimberlee know if there’s anything we can help you with.
