Please go to the Score Upload form, then click "Modify parameter  
settings for this resource"

There is a parameter called "Format for display of score  
(scoreformat)". You can set this on any level, for example on the  
sequence level, to for example "1f" is your scores are 1.5, 2.0, etc.  
If you have 1.75, etc, as possible scores, please set it to "2f".
