Co-Convened Course with 2 Separate Weighted Grades?

Good afternoon, 

I am seeking some help on a predicament that a faculty member posed to us (instructional designers on campus) by which I'm currently befuddled. 

This is a summary of their issue:

They have 2 separate courses that they are combining into one Canvas Course. It will consist of undergraduate and graduate students (co-convened). They intend to use a weighted grading system as opposed to point-based, but the weighted assignment groups will differ between their graduate and undergraduate students.

It'd look something like this :

Assignment

Undergraduate

Graduate

(8) Lab exercises

42 % (lowest dropped)

42 % (lowest dropped)

(8) Peer-assessments of lab exercises

8%

8%

Initial map presentation

20%

10%

Final map presentation

25%

20%

class participation

5%

0%

LPSC-style abstract

0%

20%

I'd love for your input on how I might be able to advise this particular professor. Thank you so much for reading.
