titleWeighted grades

The use of weighted grading for poll questions supports providing different point values to any multiple choice (true or false) and clickable image questions. Please be aware this may not always transfer cleanly into your Canvas gradebook, if you're wanting polls as a graded part of your course.

If you turn on this Beta feature you MUST enable the option for all poll questions, even those that are using 1 and zeros.
