Can I weight individual assignments?

I am brand spanking new to all of this...I would like to grade writing on a 4 point scale.  In addition, I want to "weight" this assignment by 5.  Essentially I want a potential 4 point score = 20 possible points.  Can I do that?  Pls advise..Thank you.

Hi  @mparinas  Welcome to the worldwide Canvas Community!  It sounds like you just want to grade from a basic five-criterion rubric if I'm understanding your question correctly.  A bit like this sample one that I just created as a quick example:

Is that generally what you are after?  You can do this by creating a rubric for the assignment in question, as outlined here:  Does that help at all, Mellany?

Hi  @mparinas ‌ ~ It's been a while since the Canvas Community has heard from you! Was  @kblack ‌'s suggestion of rubrics helpful? Did it help you reach a solution?? If you could take a few minutes to provide the Canvas Community with an update, that would be great! Smiley Happy
