    It would help to have a pop-up warn you when you enter a grade into an assignment that exceeds the maximum points possible. This would prevent instructors from mistakenly inflating the assignments grades.

     

    Just as a note, there are some instructors who hand out extra credit on a regular basis, so this pop-up should be as invasive as possible, so that it doesn't impede their ability to quickly input grades.  Maybe not a pop-up, but just a mass warning later saying "You've inputted grades that are above the maximum, did you intend to do this, yes/no?"
