Re: Sparse Scales (A feature implementation story)
Group Particularly helpful Moodlers

We've turned off scales being aggregated into the grades because with 300 instructors it became impossible to explain to them that when they created their own custom scale each placehold only incremented the grade value by 1.  It was really quite simple to implement "letter grade input" into the LAE Grader report so an instructor could mark B- or b- and have it calculate to 1 less than the floor value for 'B'.
