Ack! Compounded Late Penalties?! Reset Grades?!

I think I messed up: I had set the gradebook late penalty to deduct 2% per day late, intending students to lose a full grade per week late (yes, my math is totally messed up; I was thinking one week = five class meetings [insert eye rolling face here]). A student let me know that the result is, instead, a grade and a half penalty (8 days, Monday to Monday, for example) since Canvas deducts by the second (it seems) and seven days a week. So I changed the penalty to try to adjust. However, EVERYTHING seems wrong now; it seems as if I compounded the late penalty when I made the change.


QUESTION: How do I remove late penalties and restore original grades? I tried eliminating it, but the grades didn't change. I do not want to have to re-enter everything. Ugh.


Thanks for your time during this busy week!!
