I'm wondering if this should say Grace period, instead of Grade Period?  Or maybe it IS something about grades?

"Grade Period widget for LMS Integrated SAM"


And it looks like Reports will be available right after submission (perhaps a message prompting students to click "here"" for report?) vs going to reports and looking for it?  GUESS I'll just have to wait and SEE..Smiley Happy!  


Love the LMS report link and project time options1


It's like Christmas all over again, thanks Cengage!



@Sandy_Keeter yes, it absolutely should say "Grace Period." Thanks for catching that!
