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.
