    In a situation where the final word of a sentence needs to be in quotes, (not dialogue), the punctuation comes AFTER the quotes, right? Not within, like in dialogue, correct?

    Ex. The assignment was what you'd call "tricky".

    In British English, yes. 'The rules for punctuation are a bit different for American English- I'll wait to see what an American says.
