Fix Version/s: None
I'm assigning this to me and I feel like it's more of a feature request, but what I'd like to see happen is for every tool that links to the gradebook only have one way of linking to the gradebook. I believe that the gradebook should be the authority and you should be able to edit the grades either in the tool or the gradebook. This would require
- Every tool needs to support adding to an already exiting grade. (I believe Samigo doesn't yet but was a work in progress : SAK-29176)
- Every tool should have a way in the UI to either both link to an existing item or create a new item. (And then link to it)
- Each existing item (probably?) only allow one thing to link up to it. I feel like looking at discussion this is how it works now. Though because of bugs like SAK-29205 if titles match up it can get mixed up.
- All UI that allows for adding "externally maintained" grades should be removed, but probably we'd have to leave this code in the core for awhile unless a conversion process could be written.
The advantages of this would be much easier to use for the user and better expectations, probably better for future LTI outcomes that would allow better manipulation of grade items and supporting one less workflow for grading. Since editing in GBNG is so good we could push a lot of grading ideas through that now. (Like rubrics) rather than rewriting it in every tool too.
