How to Hide Quizzes from Students

First, contact support to request Head Teacher status. This status enables you to hide quizzes.

Few teachers hide quizzes. Instead, they allow Newsroom 101 to display its full contents and give students an assignment sheet indicating which parts to complete. Ambitious students then have the option of completing the rest of Newsroom 101. If you hide quizzes, students cannot see or complete them.

Hide quizzes carefully and at your own risk.

(1) After opening your section of Newsroom 101, in the upper right slide Edit Mode to ON.


(2) To Hide a quiz, find it in the list, and to its right, click on the three-dot symbol. You will see one choice: the option to hide it.

Once you hide a quiz, a message in a gray box will appear by its name: "Hidden from students. This quiz will not show in student gradebooks, but you will see it in yours.

(3) When you are finished, return to the top of the page and Turn Editing Off.

How to Un-Hide a Topic

To un-hide an item, go through the steps above but choose the option that now displays the "Show" symbol.

IMPORTANT: If a quiz is marked "Review" or "All" and displays a list of prerequisites (with a note beginning "Restricted. Not available unless..."), you MUST assign all the prerequisites in order to assign the Review quiz.

You may assign any of the prerequisites, however, without the Review. Be careful what you hide.

Go slowly and carefully. Feel free to ask questions.
