Hi Michael,

If you have not changed the part ids on the two 'old' parts then what
will occur is it will look like the students will have two parts they
never attempted (the two new ones), and the two old parts will stay the same

If you changed the partids on the old ones then depending on how you
changed them, some parts might still look like they used, some of the
new parts might look like they inherited the old status from a
different part, or credit might disappear.
