Dropping the lowest grade results in worse score for student

Hi,

I created a Rule to drop the three lowest assignments in a Group.  But I noticed when adding a high score (24/24 points) to a student's grade, her overall average went down.  When I checked, Canvas had dropped the 24/24 assignment when it should have dropped a smaller-point assignment with the same percentage ( 5/5, or 100% -- this student rarely misses any points!).  For this A+ student it doesn't make a huge difference, but for other students I fear it DOES make a difference.

 

Any idea why Canvas is dropping the wrong low score?
