In Draft State, items in Assignments, Quizzes, Modules, Pages, and Discussions are unpublished by default, that means students cannot see these items until they are published. AND, graded items like assignments and quizzes are not included in gradebook and are not calculated.
Changes to the Canvas interface include:
- Pages has an Index page and displays page titles.
- Individual pages do not include sidebars.
- Any page can be set as the front page of their course.
- Quizzes do not have to be republished if the content is changed.
- If a Module is not published all content within that module is hidden.
