How do I add Assignment Groups?
Using Assignment Groups allows you to organize the assignments in your course.
Add Assignment Group Title
Add Grading Rule
For each Assignment Group, you can Drop the lowest or Drop the Highest x number of grades. You can also specify which Assignments should never be dropped from the Assignment Group calculation.
Note: Under normal circumstances, Canvas determines the grade that has the most negative effect on the student's grade and drops that grade. However, under a specific set of circumstances, this behavior might not occur. Canvas drops the score with the lowest percentage regardless of its effect on the final grade if all of the following conditions are met:
- Your assignment groups are not weighted.
- You have grading rules to drop the lowest assignments in multiple assignment groups.
- An assignment group contains assignments worth different point values.
If you meet the above three conditions, your grading rule might not be applied consistently to all your students.
