MDL-42494 Fix workshop coding exception if all assessments have zero …

…weight

If all assessments for the given submission have zero weight, the grading
evaluation plugin "Comparison with the best assessment" is unable to decide on
the average assessment as it ignores those with zero weight. In such rare case,
it makes sense to set the grading grade to null and prevent the coding
exception.
