The My Classes tab on Quill allows you to manage your classes and student accounts.
Read more about the different ways that you can manage your classes and students below.
Student account settings
Create or import classes
To learn how to import classes from Google Classroom, click here.
To learn how to import classes from Clever, click here.
To manually create classes and manually add students, click the Create a class button.
Then, add the name and grade of the class, reset the class code (an optional step), and click the Create class, next button.

Click here to see a detailed guide about manually creating classes and manually adding students.
Find a class code
A class code is used by students to join a class. To find a class code, navigate to the My Classes page.
Then, look to the right of the Class code: copy below the class name.
If the class was imported from Google Classroom or Clever, you will see a (?) icon and need to hover over this symbol to see the class code.
Rename a class
You can rename any class on Quill by first navigating to the My Classes page. Then, click on the class roster and click the Rename class button.
If the class is synced to Google Classroom or Clever, and you have renamed the class on Quill, you can see the name of the class on the source platform by hovering your mouse over the (?) copy.
Archive a class
New school year? Created a class by mistake? Classes can be archived!
To archive a Quill class, navigate to the My Classes page. Then, click on a class name and click the Archive button for that class.
Click here for detailed instructions on how to archive a class.
Once a class is archived, student data and reports associated with the class will also be archived. Archived classes will always be listed on the Archived Classes page within the My Classes tab.
To reorder your classes, navigate to the My Classes page. Then, click and drag the four lines to the left of each class to change the order of your classes.
Add a co-teacher
To add a co-teacher to one of your classes, navigate to the My Classes tab. Then, click on the class to which you would like to invite a co-teacher, scroll down to the Teachers section and click the Invite co-teachers button.
Click here for detailed instructions on inviting co-teachers and to find out what co-teachers can and cannot do on Quill.
Invite students to a class
There are different ways to add students to your classes depending on the rostering method you have used. Please click any of the links below to see detailed information about inviting students to your class. You can find a class's rostering method below a class's name on the My Classes page.
Manage students' Quill passwords
If students were manually rostered in your Quill classes, you can manage your students' passwords. To download a PDF of all of your students' Quill usernames and passwords, navigate to the My Classes page and click on Download student log-in instructions.
To reset a student's password, click the ellipsis icon within the Actions column to the far right of that student's name and click the Reset password option to reset their password to their last name with the first letter capitalized.
Remove a student from a class
If you would like to remove a student from your class, first navigate to the My Classes page. Then, click on the name of the class from which you would like to remove the student and click the ellipsis icon in the Actions column to the far right of that student's name. Then, click the Remove from class option. This will remove this student from this class and remove any of this student's data from your dashboard.
If the student's account was created when rostering a class through Google Classroom or Clever, you may not see the Remove from class option. In this case, remove the student from the source class in Google Classroom or Clever. Then, depending on whether the class is a Google-synced or Clever-synced class, click the Import Google Classroom students or Import Clever students button above the class roster in Quill.
This will update the class roster such that the copy in the Synced column for this student reads No, indicating that the student is no longer rostered in the source Google Classroom or Clever class. You can then click the ellipsis in the Actions column and choose the Remove from class option.
Move a student to another class
You can move students to another one of your classes and keep their assigned/completed activities! The rostering method that was used to add the student to a class will determine how the student is moved from that class.
Move manually added students
On the My Classes page, click on the class in which the student is currently rostered. Click the ellipsis icon in the Actions column to the far right of the student's name in this class roster and click the Move class option. This option is only available for students with the Username copy in the Log-in method field.
A menu prompting you to choose the class to which you would like to move this student will appear.
Move Google Classroom-synced or Clever-synced students
If a student has the copy, Google or Clever, listed in the Log-in Method column, this student has a Quill account that is linked to Google or Clever. In this case, follow the steps in this guide to ensure a successful transfer of the student and their Quill data between classes.
Move a student to a different teacher's class
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
The username of each student whom you'd like to be moved.
The class code for the class in which they are currently rostered.
The class code for the class to which they should be transferred. To learn more about how to find your class codes, check out our article about class codes.
