Assignment Group Weights by Class Group

I'm wondering if there is a way to adjust the assignment group weightings, based on the class groups. I am currently teaching a class with two different sections - one for senior undergraduates, and one for master's students. The lectures are taught simultaneously, so I've got one "class" on Canvas, with two different class groups - one for the undergrad section, one for the graduate student section. The graduate students have some additional assignments from the undergrads, so I need to weight their assignment groups differently.

It seems that Canvas will only let you assign one set of assignment weights for the entire that right? Or is there a way I can do different weightings by class section/group?

Hello there, @slavrenz ...

I am sorry to see that your question hasn't had a response since you first posted your question back in early September 2020.  Unfortunately, I don't think you can do what you are asking.  I tested this in my own sandbox course where I had two "Sections" that I had created via my course "Settings" >> "Sections" tab.  I then went to my "Assignments" index page to configure my Assignment Groups.  I couldn't find any options to set one set of weights for the first section compared to the second section.  It seems that you can only set weights for the class as a whole.

I know this might not be the answer you were looking for, but I hope that it has helped to answer your question.  Let Community members know if you have any other questions about this...thanks!  Take care, stay safe, and be well.
