# Set Answer Key Display for Assignments

You can show or hide the answer key for questions on your assignment. Usually, you should show the answer key only after the due date to ensure that no students see the key before submitting responses.

You can also choose to show the answer key before the due
date after students have made a certain number of submissions. Question-specific
settings apply only before the due date.

Best Practice: Show answer keys and worked
solutions either only after the due date or only after the total number of
allowed submissions. This prevents your students from using this information
to correctly answer questions.

Showing the answer key is required if you also want to show worked solutions. The answer key must be displayed to students with or before the worked solution.

Important: If your assignment uses Require new
randomizations:

- Displaying answer keys and solutions
*before*the due date is configured with the Question Randomization settings. - Displaying answer keys and solutions
*after*the due date is configured as described in this topic.
