Round Percentages to Determine Grade checkbox

If there is a checkmark placed in the checkbox, rounding rules will be applied to the percentages of a student's grade within your class.

On the other hand, if the box were unchecked, 89.9% would be considered 89% when determining the marking period grade.

Placing a checkmark in the checkbox will cause jmc to ignore the percentages when determining the overall Course Grade and instead will use the letter grade values from jmc Office.
