Hiding Student Name and ID from View

The student Name and ID number columns appear automatically when you begin your gradebook. Later, if you want more space, you may not want to keep the ID in view. Or you may prefer to keep the ID column in view and remove the Name column in order to maintain student privacy when there is a chance data may be seen by others (for example, posted test results). To remove either from view:

  1. Click View > Student Info and deselect (uncheck) Name or ID Number by clicking these items to enter a checkmark.

  2. Click OK to return to the spreadsheet.
