About Rounding Mode
When defining items in Fixed Mark Template you can define the Rounding Mode which is used for the mark item calculation. Rounding mode specifies a rounding behavior for numerical operations capable of discarding precision. Each rounding mode indicates how the least significant returned digit of a rounded result is to be calculated.
