Displaying a single students grades in the Grade Center is nice when meeting one on one with a student. This creates privacy of student grades and confidentiality. This post provides you with instructions on how to display only one student within the Grade Center at a time, to re-display the entire Grade Center, and includes instructions on how to fix a common error that occurs when hiding rows in the Grade Center (missing a student in the Grade Center).

2. Hover your mouse pointer over the students name until the down arrow (small edit button) appears and click it.
hover over the name and click edit button

3. In the resulting pop-up window, select Hide Other Rows.
