      Description

      If you change category or course totals from weighted mean to natural, its possible that grade items will get set as extra credit.

      Steps -
      Site with natural and weighted mean aggregations.
      create a course
      create a single grade item "A"
      Course total aggregation should be "natural" by default
      change aggregation type to "weighted mean" and save
      Change weight of grade item "A" from 1 to 2 and save
      Change aggregation type to Natural

      you'll now see that grade item A is extra credit.

      I'll post more notes over the next day or two.
