Weighted grades in Canvas

Modified on: Fri, Jul 13, 2018 at 10:34 AM

Weighting different types of assignments in Canvas is a two-step process:

  1. Create assignment groups. For example, if you wanted to weight Homework, Discussion, and Tests, you would create three groups and then sort your assignments into those groups as appropriate.
  2. Give each assignment group a weight. Go to Canvas Instructor Guide > How do I weight the final course grade based on assignment groups? for instructions (See, Fig. 1)
