[OPEN] Clicking into and out of needs grading cells posts grade for "Enter Grades as" with percentage


Engineers are currently investigating the issue.


When clicking into and out of the needs grading icon in the gradebook for Enter Grades as percentage quizzes results in a score being entered.

Expected Behavior

Grades that require attention should not post before the question is graded.


If the assignment is not set to enter grades as percentage it will not post. Either in the quiz settings or in the gradebook settings.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a course with enrolled students

  2. Create a classic or new quiz with at least one manually graded question and one automatically graded question

  3. Set Enter Grades as to percentage in the gradebook

  4. Have a student take the quiz

  5. In the gradebook, click on the “needs attention” icon on the gradebook and then click away and see that a grade is posted
