Weighting Quarter Grades

Question 1: Our school uses a weighted quarter system.

20% Quarter 1

20% Quarter 2

10% Midterm

20% Quarter 3

20% Quarter 4

10% Final

I would like to do this in Canvas and followed the information to "edit grading scheme" through settings.  However, the "edit grading period" was not available.  Is this a function that has to be allowed by the course administrator at the account level?


Question 2: Also, in our cyber program, a group of students will start at the beginning of the year and work through on pace.  There will be other groups of students who will filter in during the year.  Some will come in with no prior course experience and will need to access previous grading periods.  With what I read in the grading period descriptions, I am worried that creating grading periods would inhibit my ability to grade those students who are coming in and trying to catch up.


Any advice you could give would be helpful!
