Caution: watch out for...

Note: Adjusting the maximum points for a particular grade item after scores are entered will not adjust the score data accordingly. Because of that, students may end up with incorrect grades for an item that are either higher or lower than what they actually earned. Please ensure the max points value is correct before entering score data.

Changing the weight of an item after data has been entered is fine and D2L will adjust the calculation accordingly.
