      1. In a site with Gradebook and Assignments, go to Gradebook and create a gradebook item worth 10 points, with a due date specified.
      2. In Assignments, add an assignment.
      3. While creating the assignment, give it a different due date than the gradebook item, and make the assignment worth 20 points. Select Associate with existing Gradebook item and choose the item you created in step 1 before saving.
      4. Issue: You can save the assignment. If you go to Gradebook, you'll find that the total points and due date are still different from the assignment's actual points/due date.
        Expected behavior: On attempting to save the assignment, be warned that you can't associate the assignment because it's a different point value. After changing the point value to match the gradebook item, have the item automatically copy the due date that was entered in Assignments.

      Description

      If you use the option in Assignments Associate with existing Gradebook item, the gradebook item and assignment do not have to have the same point value or due date. Thus, the following issues can arise:

      • Wrong grades by having a different maximum point value for the same assignment in Gradebook and Assignments.
      • Confusion from students about the due date if the instructor doesn't set the same date in both places.

      These issues were supposedly fixed for Gradebook Classic way back in Sakai 2.4 (see jiras below), but apparently they have recurred with Gradebook NG. (It's also my recollection that at some point, GB Classic did warn when trying to associate an assignment of a different point value to an existing gradebook entry, but I might be mis-remembering and don't have a 10 instance to test it on.)
