Okay, I was looking over grades and having an uneasy feeling about certain grades "looking wrong," and I went to check the Settings and saw that no late work was being penalized. I was unhappy because I (thought I had) previously set all late work to be penalized at 0.5% per hour (writing assignments, community college, etc), and now I don't have the option to set it in the form of a decimal or fraction. I USED to be able to do this as recently as last semester. Did I miss the memo, or is there a trick involved that I have seemingly forgotten?
UPDATE: checking against other current Canvas shells, and the 0.5% penalty IS active in those other sections. I dare not try changing those right now, as that would mess a lot of folks up if I couldn't go back to that level. The workaround in the one "whole number" shell is to cut everyone's late hours tally by 50%, which has the same net effect but is very cumbersome to execute.
