[LON-CAPA-users] Tolerance Problems?

It's a question of which parameter, at which level, takes precedence.
There is some description of what those priorities are, documented somewhere...
I also believe that Guy may have posted this info to this list
sometime in the last year.

A quick fix, if you are wanting just this particular problem to have
the 15%, is set it (seemingly redundantly) in PARM at the Resource

I usually find it is best to wait a bit and then login as a pure
student user  to observe the ultimate effect of parameter changes.

Hope that is of some help, anyway.
