5 manual EC assigments marked as Extra Credit, set to zero
Created a Total Column - pulled in 5 columns to calc
Expected behavior: total the points shown as earned to date
Actual behavior: does not total points
Work Around: Assign at least 1 Extra Credit assignment to be worth at least 1 point and must have data in column (1 point)
Cause: Magically all 5 columns sum to the total column (seems glitchy on the programatic end with sum if/then?...).
Anyone else seeing this issue?
I did see only this but not the same thing....

Issue Description: When a weighted column includes a category in its calculations, and that category has an "Extra Credit" column, entering grades on the extra credit
column does not update the weighted grade.
Steps to Replicate:
Access system as an administrator
Create a test course
Enroll a test user into the course as a student
Create 2 assignments in the course, worth 50 points each (100 points total for the "Assignment" category)
Navigate to Full Grade Center
Click on Create Column
Give the column a name ("Extra Credit")
Set Category to Assignment
Set Points Possible to 0. This will set it as an extra credit column
Hover over "Create Calculated Column" button in Grade Center, then click on "Weighted Column"
In the "Select Columns" section, select the "Assignment" category
Give the category 100% weight and select to weight columns Proportionally
Enter override grades for the test student on both assignment columns: one grade of 50, the other of 30 for a total of 80 points
Notice the weighted column shows a grade of 80%
Enter a grade in the Extra Credit column (for example 15)
The grade in the Weighted total does not change
Grade calculated correctly
