Automatic scoring for discussions?

My college is switching from Angel to Canvas this summer, and there's one handy Angel feature I'm trying to find an equivalent to, which is the option to score discussions automatically based on the number of original posts and replies.

 

This is useful for me because I assign short, pass/fail reading responses at the beginning of every class as a warm up. On an assignment like this, there's no need to pick each response apart--the point is to get some writing practice without the pressure of being graded, so auto scoring works fine.

 

Does Canvas offer a feature like this?
