Can one create assignment groups inside assignment groups? For instance, imagine I were to give three midterm exams. In total they will be 40% of the final grade. This can be handled by putting the three midterms in one assignment group and then giving that group a weight of 40%.

But what if the three exams each have different point totals, but I would want to weight them equally? If I put the three exams in the same group, they would be weighted by the total number of points rather than equally. Groups within groups would solve this, but I don't know if it's possible.

Or is there another solution? Thanks for your ideas!

Ken,

Nested groups are not supported.

Based off of what you described, you could make three midterm assignment groups worth 40/3 = 13.3% of the grade each. One of them would need to be 13.4% to make it come out to exactly 40%.

The easier-for-students-to-understand way is to go through and change the points on each problem so that they are equal in point value.
