How are Course Total grades calculated/displayed when a course is only partially completed?

How are Course Total grades calculated/displayed when a course is only partially completed (if I get 9/10 on my first assignment, which is 10% of the final grade, do I see a total grade of 90% or 9%)?

When students view their grades, there is a checkbox to choose whether to calculate the total based only on graded assignments. As best I can tell, it defaults to calculating only on graded assignments (i.e., displaying 90%). When the instructor views an individual student's grades, they see the same thing as a student does, with the checkbox to choose which calculation they want. In the gradebook view, the default is to calculate totals only based on graded assignments; in the gear menu at the top right of the gradebook, there is an option to "Treat Ungraded as 0", which gets you the other calculation (to display 9%).
