When using CoCalc for giving tests I would like an option to collect assignments and hide the associated students' assignment folders from their view until the assignment is returned. This would keep students from showing their test to students in other sections so the test questions don't get out into the wild. I know that students who are driven to share their work (i.e. cheat) will do so by taking screen shots or some other method, but this might stop the "casual" cheater.

This could be challenging to implement, since it is impossible to build on top of our current security model. What we could do instead is have a special complete project just for this particular assignment, and remove the student from the project after the homework is collected -- that fits the security model, and would solve your problem.

that deletes the assignment folder for all students.

If they really want to, they can just click the "Backups" button, and navigate to the snapshot of the folder before you deleted it. Alternatively, they can recreate the file, then use timetravel to go back to when it wasn't empty.
