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