This value is such that if the default level thresholds are used in a course with approximately 180-200 problems per semester then most students will get to level 9 or 10 by the end of the course. If you use fewer or more than 200 problems in your courses then you should adjust the Achievement Points Per Problem value in ratio to 200.
