You can decide yourself before which check-in date to submit your assignments for assessment. It is recommended that the modules are completed within one term (autumn term = September-December, spring term = January-May). After the check-in date, it will take one or two weeks for you to get the feedback and for the course credit to show in Sisu. Grading scale is pass / fail.
