Varying point values within a weighted category

I have weighted categories for my course. Within the categories, my assignments vary in point values but I want each assignment to be weighted equally regardless of the total points for that assignment. How do I set that?

 

Here is an example:

Quiz 1 - total of 10 questions - student gets 10 right - 100%

Quiz 2 - total of 15 questions - student gets 10 right - 67%

At this point the quiz average should be 83.5 (167/2) but Canvas reports it as an 80% because it calculates the quiz average by dividing all correct quiz responses (20) by all possible quiz responses (25).
