Running total should NOT be the default

Idea created by schlater.david on May 23, 2018

    For both the Total and Weighted Total columns in the full grade center, change the default for the setting "Calculate as Running Total" to be "NO" whenever a new column is made (including courses made by an Admin or SIS).


    For many instructors, they do not realize that missed work is not impacting the percentage / letter grades, thinking no/null submission -- by the student is being calculated as a zero by default.


    If someone wants the column to be a running total, have them actively make that change. They may then remember they did it and switch it back at the end of the term.
