Our faculty want the option to have assignments within an assignment group to be given the same weight even if they are graded on different point values.
Assignment Group = Homework 25% of final grade
Homework 1 10 pts
Homework 2 15 pts
Homework 3 10 pts
Currently, the homework #2 which is worth 15 points will have a larger influence over the grade than homeworks 1 or 3. We can encourage faculty to grade all assignments within a group on the same point-value scale, but there are 3,000 of them and four of us. Additionally, our previous LMS, Blackboard, allowed the user to opt to weigh all of the assignments WITHIN a group equally. Faculty are very upset by this lack in functionality ESPECIALLY when they become aware of the miscalculation right before final grades are due.
