I have a course linked to Pearson's MyLab Brady. There are a lot of homework assignments, pretests, readings ect. I have noticed that the chapter Pretest in Pearson greatly impact the students overall grade. Is there a way to take that entire category of assignments and change the impact on the overall student average?
If Pearson is creating an assignment in your Canvas course then you can weight your groups to change how they impact the grade. You will set a value for each group and then move assignments to the group that best reflects their value.
Have a look at the Canvas guide for group weighting.
Hope this helps!
