What does the orange dot on the Grades and Comments tab mean?

In the Comments section on the Grades and Comments tab in the teacher portal LMS, the orange dot displays when the grading period is 'active' and it is a minor grading period. It will not display for mid-grading periods.

In the Grade Review section, a 'grading period' marked as *Grade Review Active*, will be orange-flagged in the portal. If there is not a grading period flagged as *Review Active*, the system will look at the 'active grading period' and orange-flag that one.

If neither *Review Active* or the Active Grading Period are flagged, there will be no orange flag.
