3. Control grade visibility

Staff are able to set a Grade Posting Policy for either the whole module or per-assignment in terms of having the grades ‘hidden’ or ‘posted’ to students by default. ‘Hidden’ and ‘Posted’ replace the previous ‘Mute’ and ‘Unmute’ terminology . The posting policies can be set to automatic or manual.
