This feature is for Teachers.
Teachers can set the status of assignments when creating or updating them.
There are 3 status types:
Active (default): Students can view and submit to the assignment
Frozen: Students can view the assignment, but can’t submit to it
Hidden: Students can’t view or submit to the assignment
Changing Assignment Status
Teachers can add or update an assignment status from the Create New Assignment form, the Edit Assignment form, and the Assignment cards on the dashboard:
Create New Assignment form
While on the dashboard click the Add Assignment Button to open up the Create New Assignment form.
Select Freeze Assignment or Hide Assignment from the Status dropdown
Add any other data you want to the form and click Save

How can I tell what the current status of an assignment is?
You can tell by looking at the Status dropdown for each individual assignment while on the dashboard, or by navigating to the Assignment Details tab for an individual assignment.
If I change assignment status after I create an assignment, will students see those changes immediately?
No. Students will need to refresh their dashboard in order to see any changes you make to the assignment, including assignment status.
