Is there a way to control the passing of the grade to LMS by score instead of by percentage?

Percentages are rounded to the nearest integer in WeBWorK. This is fine in general, rounding is needed since percentages can have infinitely many decimal digits. But when the grade is passed to Blackboard using individual assignments where we match theĀ  assignment's score in Blackboard with the assignment's score in WeBWorK, then students start noticing more and more discrepancies with scores likeĀ 
16.92 out of 18 instead of 17 out of 18 (94.44... % -> 94%)
5.22 out of 38 instead of 5 out of 38 (8.62...% -> 9%)
