      Description

      When the Choice activity Results > Privacy of results setting is set to "Publish anonymous results, do not show student names", instructors and anyone with admin access can see how students voted by clicking on "View x responses".

      We will be providing a patch that removes student names and also removes the ability to download the results (which included student names).
