How can I control when students see grade items when they check their grades?

There are many different ways that grade items can be restricted either by managing when it is visible to students or by setting up release conditions.  By far the easiest way is to manage its visibility by date.  To set a date when a grade item becomes visible to students do the following:


1.  Click on Grades image of grades link in navigation bar

You can also select an end date if you only want them to see it for a fixed period of time.

You can check display in Calendar as well if you want this grade item to show up in the calendar.
