      1. On Site administration > Grades > General settings check "Percentage" and "Letter" for "Grade export display type" and save.
      2. In a course gradebook go to Export > OpenDocument spreadsheet and open the Export options to confirm that your defaults are being honored.
      3. Still in the gradebook check that the same is true for Export > Plain text file and for Export > Excel spreadsheet.
      4. Still in the gradebook check the Export options under Export > XML file to confirm that the display type is set to "Real." This format does not support multiple display types and will default to real if more than one type is set in the admin defaults.
      5. Back in the admin settings deselect "Percentage" and save.
      6. In the course gradebook confirm that the display type for XML file exports is now set to "Letter" (the single choice at this point in the sitewide settings).
      7. In the admin settings deselect all display types.
      8. In the course gradebook confirm that the display type for XML exports is again set to "Real."

      In the admin settings only simplex options will actually apply in the course grade export options. Instructors can still override those and apply multiple display types if they wish.

      Description

      The issue is present in at least 3.1 through 3.4. The setting in Site Admin > Grades > Grade export display type is not always reflected in the actual grade export function.  This setting is reflected only if the selection is one of the following: Letter, Percentage, or Real.  None of the complex settings, such as "percentage (real)",  are reflected.

      By selecting "Letter (percentage)" or any of the other complex settings, the export looks like this.  Without selecting another option on the export page, it defaults to exporting real data.

      I propose that the site admin > grades > general settings be changed to have checkboxes similar to those on the export page to allow multiple selections.
