Question asked by Hannah Kling on Oct 10, 2019

Hi folks,

 

I'm building a course as I go this semester. I use Canvas quizzes for part of their homework, and also assign other homeworks. I know how to assign weights to segments (homework=15%, etc), but I want each homework assignment weighted equally. Each quiz I've already assigned is worth the same number of points as the number of questions in the quiz. Each quiz has a different number of questions, so is worth 

 

Can I retroactively set each quiz to be worth the same number of points (without manually adjusting every single question)?

 

If not, is my best bet just to assign the rest of the homework (stuff they turn in) to be worth the same number of points as the average quiz?

 

Or is there a way to change the quizzes to count percentage correct rather than score as a point value?

 

How do I avoid this problem in the future? 

 

Thanks!
