I copied all the assignment groups from the source group, but the weights did not transfer over to the destination course... Is it possible to retain those when importing?
Hello E Fel - The short answer is that should not have happened, IF you were importing from another Canvas course. I've done this more times than I can remember, and the assignment weights have imported just fine from the source Canvas course. If, however, you were importing from an archived packaged from another LMS, that's another matter.
Furthermore, if you: a.) already began working on the course site, and b.) already had some weighted assignment groups in that course site and THEN imported from another course site, that will indeed result in a bit of chaos, though the weights should still there....they would just likely add up to more than 100% (I just replicated this behavior now on a sample course site.) If you ever do an import from another course, the time to do it is when the destination course site is still empty and worked on very, very little....if at all.
And finally, was the previous site one where, perhaps, there was a publisher/text LTI being used as an app. That could cause some other problems, as well, especially if the new site did not have the same LTI app ready to go.
I hope this helps a bit. But if you imported from a Canvas course TO a Canvas course and the destination course was "empty," it may be time to consider reporting that behavior to Canvas (Help>>Report a Problem.)
