Hi,
 The weight of the literature module is 26%. Before getting upset
about an anticipated lost point, multiply 89 by 26% (23.14)and then 90
by 26% (23.4). You will see that there is no difference in terms of
the final grade. They would only be rounded up a point if it were
23.5. Show this to your students, and everyone will calm down.
