I understand having weights to grades, however, say there are 4 assignments, each assignment has X number of points but equal X weight, the weights are not the same for each assignment. How do you show that each assignment has a different weight in the assignments area?

example:

Assignment A= 100 points with 20% of the overall grade

Assignment B =50 points with 30% of the overall grade

Assignment C= 75 points with 10% of the overall grade

Assignment D=200 points with 40% of the overall grade

thank you,

Dr. Kathy Kaiser Wright, from your description, it sounds like each of these assignments is in its own assignment group, and if it is, and you're using weighted assignment groups, the points you've assigned to each one don't matter. The assignment will contribute to the overall course grade according to the percentage you've given it in its own assignment group.

If you're using the Syllabus page as the course home page, students will see these weightings displayed in the right panel of the home page. They will also see these weightings on their Grades tab.

However, if you're saying that you're using weighted assignment groups, and all four of these assignments are in the

sameassignment group, you will need to make sure that each assignment is worth points that are equal to its proportionate contribute to that group. So in the case stated above, change the points for Assignment A to 20 points, Assignment B to 30 points, Assignment C to 10 points, and Assignment D to 40 points. The assignments will contribute unequally to the assignment group. Since you used the words "overall grade," I don't think this is what you mean, in which case just read the first and second paragraphs.
