I am offering my students several options for earning points in each module. My problem is that they may earn more than the maximum allowable for a module. For example, if a module is worth 20 points; they can select any of 5 assignments worth 5 points each. If they don't earn the full 20 points on the 4 that they select, they may complete the other assignment and end up with a total of 23 points. I have told them that they can't carry over points from one module to the next so I need to only count 20 points for full credit for that module.
I haven't figured out a good way to do this since their cumulative number of points includes all the assignments. Is there any way for me to automate the process in Canvas or will I have to maintain a separate spreadsheet and keep them informed about their actual total rather than the one shown in grades?
