Combined assignments

My school is moving over to Canvas for the fall, and I am piloting it in the first summer term. One issue I am running into is having my lab grades split: they consist of a lab report worth 75 points and a lab quiz worth 25 points. Ideally, they should combine into a single grade for each lab worth 100 points, but I don't see a way of doing that.

I would be fine with having a third assignment that combines them together, but that would either mean I have a couple dozen assignments that are set to be not graded (which is potentially confusing, since they are worth something) or I just don't enter grades for the two items (I think this would keep them from showing up in the gradebook, which works out alright since both reports and quizzes are done via external tools).

Either way, this seems to be an ugly process. Is there be a more efficient way of doing this?
