Issue Description: Use a grading schema to convert scores (out of 22 ie use grade points and our scale ranges from 0 to 22) to alphanumeric values. When you download the final Course grades, if you have a grade of 0, the grade center online displays a G3 (which is the alphanumeric equivalent value) but the download gives a value of 0 instead of G3. This only happens for the 0 value. All other grade point values download as the alphanumeric value shown online in the grade center.

Steps to Replicate:

  1. Login to Blackboard Learn
  2. Create a Course then enter it's grade center
  3. Create a column and use a grading schema to convert scores (ie use grade points and our scale ranges from 0 to 22 where for example G3 = 0) to alphanumeric values
  4. Score the Students with different scores ranges from 0 to 22
  5. Full grade center > Work Offline> Download
Expected Behavior:
All grades in the download file are alphanumeric values as displayed in the grade center

Observed Behavior:
The G3 value displays as 0
