changing point totals for quizzes (not re-weighting)

My students do multiple Canvas quizzes over the course of the semester.  Although each of them has a different number of questions, I would like them all to be worth the same amount of points.  I do not want to use the weighting feature as I've found that weighted grades can be confusing to students.


So, what is the best way to make all of my quizzes worth 10 points?  For example, quiz 1 has 21 questions and so is automatically worth 21 points in Canvas, while quiz 2 has 15 questions and so is worth 15 points.  There should be a way to indicate each quiz is worth, and then Canvas automatically re-calculates the points for each question based on that total.


Any help would be appreciated!
