How to Tell if Assignments are Hidden

Go to the Assignments tool. Your assignments will display a “Hidden” icon if they are hidden from students. They will not have the icon if they are visible to students.

In Content, if you have linked to an assignment via Existing Activities, you will see hidden assignments marked as being in “Draft” status. They will not if they are visible to students.
