Some instructors want their students to turn in a Grammarly report to verify that you used the service. You can download a PDF report of the Grammarly review by selecting the score icon on the bottom right.
The goal of this report is to improve your writing and word choice as well as to check for plagiarism. The score itself is a guide, not a grade.
Although you can ignore all of the issues to receive a perfect score of 100, remember that the instructor can also use Grammarly to verify your score.
Checks for spelling errors, as well as words that are spelled correctly but were used in the wrong context. For example: to/two/too, here/hear, and or/oar.
Checks for missing and extra punctuation.
Checks for writing style problems, and attempts to help avoid redundancy, wordiness, and usage of colloquialisms in your writing.

Checks for subject-verb agreement, consistent tenses, verb forms, as well as other common grammar mistakes.
