Assignment Groups & Course Sections

How do you weight assignments differently for students in multiple sections of the same course? I am having some difficulty with this and not sure how to proceed.


I have two sections of a course, one for graduate level and another for undergraduate level. Most of the assignments are the same. However, I have a few that have been separated into individual assignments that are assigned to each section. So, for example, Assignment A has been created twice as AG and AU, one for each section. Each assignment has been assigned to the appropriate section.


I then setup assignment groups so that I can weight all my assignments. So, in the above example, AG is in Group 1 and AU is in Group 2. The problem I am incurring is that the assignment groups are showing up for all my students regardless of the course section. This causes my weights to exceed 100%. Again with the example, Group 1 should only appear for the graduate students because only graduate students are assigned to assignment AG and Group 2 should only appear for the undergraduate students because only undergraduate students are assigned to AU. But instead, Group 1 and Group 2 show in the gradebook for an individual student causing the weighting to exceed 100%.


This is a rather complex scenario and I am not sure how to resolve the issue. I hope I have explained it well.

Thanks for any help you can give.
