      Description

      Once you add a category to the gradebook, and set Aggregation method to Sum, it defaults to 100 points, even though this category can have nothing inside.
      Those 100 points are included in the calculation of the course total, so students are getting penalized for nothing.
      I believe we should switch the default Max grade to 0 points for categories (and for non-graded items - see MDL-18770).
