Thank you for the quick reply.

I opened the course in Canvas and opened the Assessments. I clicked on Add Assessment Group and the box that appeared only has a place for the name of the group and not for the % of total grade.

What did I miss?

Hi  @fkisner ‌, you can set the assignment group weights by clicking the Options icon next to the Add Assignment button. After you enable the group weights option, you should see fields to enter a percentage for each group. I hope this helps!

Thanks!
