    "I want a spot where I can say this quiz is worth 15 points and then have Canvas divide the number of questions by the total points and assign point values to each question. Sometimes I add or subtract a question but I need the quiz to total a certain number of points so I have to go in and calculate the exact number of points for each question and change the pt value of each question, etc...this is tedious.  Why won't the computer do this for me?"
