Assignments - why late and not missed?

Why do some assignments get marked down as 'late' rather than 'missed'? If the due date has passed, then surely the assignment should be marked as missed. Is there a different cut-off? For example, one day after the assignment is considered 'late' not missed?

I would like to know the same thing. My students think they are working on the new assignment and the XP points are being counted towards old incomplete assignment. Where is the cut off between late and missing?
