Creating Weighted Groups for Assignments

Assignment groups allow you to group assignments in a way that makes sense for your course. The benefit to this could be for weighting final grades, organizing assignments, and much more.

Using weighted groups allows you to assign percentages to an assignment group, not to assignments themselves. Within each assignment group, a percentage  is calculated by dividing the total points a student has earned by the  total points possible for all assignments in that group.
