Both endgame evaluators are now extra credit

It has been brought to our attention that there was a misprint in the starter code of the TestedEvaluator, which incorrectly labeled the EndgameEvaluator as extra credit. Because of this, both parts of the EndgameEvaluator (endgameEvaluatorTest0 and endgameEvaluatorExtraCreditTest) are now extra credit. The assignment docs will NOT be updated to reflect this due to Frontdesk limitations. I personally apologize for the misprint.
