How can I create an assignment category average when the point values for each assignment are different? For example, there are 5 assignments in a single category with the following point values: 5, 5, 6, 6, 12. Student A earns 4, 4, 5, 6, and 8 respectively on these assignments. Canvas calculates this as 27 (student's total earned points) divided by 34 (total possible points) and arrives at 79.4%. However, the individual assignment averages are 80%, 80%, 83%, 100%, and 67%. The average of these 5 scores is 82%. The 3 percentage point discrepancy could be a major factor for some students.
