      I am splitting issue SAK-33089 into two separate, related issues, since there seems to be a lack of consensus on how these two aspects of weighting can or should be accomplished within Gradebook. 

      This Jira deals with the issue of having differently weighted items within a weighted category. Currently, this can be done by placing items with different point values in the same category. The items with a greater number of points have a greater weight in the category average calculation. However, instructors may sometimes need to assign different weights to items that are worth the same point value within a category. 

      If this feature is added, it would allow instructors to modify the weight of items within a weighted category, regardless of the item point value. 

      Since items are weighted differently, the ability to drop/keep the lowest/highest score within a given category would be disabled for that category. 

      See attached mockups for one way this option might be added to the UI. (Note: If both this feature and the "equally weighted" feature described in SAK-42414 are added, the equal weighting option could simply be the default setting for weighted items within a category, and the check box to indicate equal weighting would not be needed.)
