how to assign different percentages to individual assignments within a group assignment?

Jump to solution

I have a group assignment (Final Project 35% of final grade) which as three sections (3 separate assignments). Each section is worth a different percentage and I want to grade each section based on 100 points per assignment.

Final project is 35% of final grade (Section 1= 5%, Section 2= 15%, Section 3 = 15%)

How do I enter this into Canvas so that the weighted grade is recorded in the gradebook?

In Canvas, you can have Assignment Groups, but not Assignment Subgroups. In order for your final grade to be weighted properly, I would suggest the following Assignment Groups:

Assignments - 65%  (or however you have broken this down)

Final Exam Section 1 - 5%

Final Exam Section 2 - 15%

Final Exam Section 3 - 15%

In the future, if you want just one Assignment Group for your Final Exam, then you'll need to work on your point system. For example:

Final Exam Section 1 - 10 points

Final Exam Section 2 - 30 points

Final Exam Section 3 - 30 points

Hi @pilarfm ...

I like @SusanNiemeyer's suggestion!  (I would have suggested something very similar, too.)  If you are not familiar with how to set up assignment groups, here are a couple Guides for you that walk you through the process:

Hope this helps a bit!
