      Description

      See screenshot. I think there are some room for improvement here. The current "Force and "Advanced" checkbox options are not clear to users and there is NO help buttons or anything to further explain what these two checkboxes will do. Thanks!

        I don't know if it is this bug (because I don't understand it), or it really is bug in functionality. But "Forcing" the " Aggregate only non-empty grades" option doesn't seem to have an effect on existing courses. It hides that option in the course, but the behavior doesn't change.

        In other words, if I force that option to "No" in the admin area, an existing course still behaves as if it was "Yes"... If I don't force it, the option in the course seems to work fine.
