Microsoft Office 2016 Release and SAM Projects

Microsoft Office 2016 released today! The Cengage team has been conducting testing of SAM 2013 projects when completed using Office 2016. Due to back end changes by Microsoft, initial results indicate that project grading could be impacted when an Office 2016 file is uploaded into SAM.

Impacted Users: Students using either the client installed version of Office 2016 or the Office 365 subscription version with rolling updates, may be impacted.

Solution: To avoid grading issues, students who complete projects using Office 2016 need to save their files in Office 2013 prior to submitting in SAM.

We will continue to stay on top of the release of Office 2016 and continue testing to ensure optimal user experiences. Please contact your Cengage Learning Consultant if you have additional questions.
