    Many instructors at my institution display assignment scores as a percentage in the grade nook.  In the "new" grade book, when they manually enter a raw score, it reads it as a percentage and enters it as such.  As an example, if the student scored 68 out of 80 points, and the instructor entered "68" the new grade book displays it as 68%.  

     

    In the "old" grade book, if the instructor had an assignment that displayed as a percentage, and entered a raw score, the raw score was converted to a percentage.  As an example, if the student scored 68 out of 80 points, and the instructor entered a "68" it would show the score as 85%.

     

    We would like to see the "new" grade book mirror the "old" grade book in how it handles raw scores, insofar as it converts the raw score to a percentage, rather than requiring the instructor to do that before they manually enter it in the grade book.
