We have managed our grade book for an entire subject area, using custom scales and categories for each Unit, very successfully this year.
However I have just added a new category to manage a late SLG, set-up exactly the same as the others, but when the student uploads an assignment it is putting a Fail in the final grade box.
Although it can be over-written, it is a bit disconcerting for the student to see Fail, when the work hasn't even been marked.
I have checked the "grade to pass" which i normally have set to 3, as I have 5 points in the scale.
Has anyone any suggestions or experience of this?
