The Classes tab on Quill allows you to manage all rosters and student accounts.
Click the links below for specific steps:
Student account settings
Add or import classes
To learn how to import rosters from Google Classroom, click here.
To learn how to import rosters from Clever, click here.
To add classes and students manually, click the "Create a class" button, add the class' name and grade, change the class code (optional) and click "next":
In Step 2, choose how you want to add students to this class. You can have students create their own accounts on our website (giving students more ownership of the process) or create accounts for your students (Quill will generate usernames and passwords for these students to login.)
Find a detailed guide on adding students manually by clicking here.
Find your class code
Class codes are used by students to join a new class. Students only need to use a class code the first time they join your class. You can find your class code from the Classes tab, below the class name. You may need to hover over the (?) symbol if the class was imported from Google Classroom or Clever.
Class settings: rename a class
You can rename any class on Quill by clicking on the class roster and selecting "Rename class."
If the class is connected to Google Classroom or Clever and you have renamed it on Quill, you can see the name of the class on the source platform by hovering your mouse over the (?) copy. See below:
Class settings: delete/archive a class
New school year? Created a class by mistake? Classes can be archived! Click here for detailed instructions on how to archive a class. Once it is archived, you will lose the student data and reports associated with the class. Also, Quill does not permanently delete your classes. Archived classes will always be listed under the Archived Classes tab.
Class settings: reorder classes
In your "Active Classes" tab, you can click and drag to reorder your class list by clicking the four lines to the left of each class.
Class settings: add a co-teacher
Co-teachers can manage your classes similarly to you. You can invite them via email by clicking "Invite co-teachers" at the bottom of the class roster. Click here for detailed instructions on inviting co-teachers and to find out what co-teachers can and cannot do on Quill.
Student settings: invite students
There are a few different ways to add your classes and students - you may import them from Google Classroom or Clever, or manually add students. Access the guides below for step-by-step instructions to roster your classes:
Guide - add students using Clever
Guide - add students manually (students create their own usernames and passwords or Quill generates unique usernames and passwords)
Student settings: manage students' usernames and passwords
For manually added students (not through Google Classroom or Clever), students will sign in directly on the Quill page. Follow these instructions to print a list of all your students' usernames and passwords. You can click the ellipsis under "Actions" next to any student's name for a menu of options, including editing their names and usernames, and resetting their passwords (defaults to student's last name.)
If students were added via Google Classroom or Clever, you may not see these options when clicking the three dots under "Actions." You are unable to change those students' usernames or passwords, since the information is synced to the other platform. To find these students' login information to Quill, click on "Download setup instructions" to view students' login method in a printable PDF format:
You can also click the ellipsis under "Actions" and click the "view as student" option. Then, click on the student's name on the top right of the screen to view their account information and if their Quill account is connected to their Google email or Clever log ins.
Student settings: remove a student from your class
If you wish to remove a student from your class, click the ellipsis next to the student's name in your class list and select "Remove from class". This will erase any student data from your dashboard.
If the student's account was created with Google or Clever, you may not see the "remove from class" option. In this case, simply remove the student from your class on Google Classroom or Clever first, then click the "Import Google Classroom/Clever students" button at the top of your Quill roster. This will update the 'synced' column to "No" to indicate the student is no longer in your class. You can then click "Actions" and choose the "remove from class' option.
Student settings: move a student to another class
Student account created manually (not Google Classroom/Clever):
If you manually created accounts for your students (they sign in with a Quill username and password), click the ellipsis next to a student's name and select "Move class". You will be prompted to choose the class this student should move to - this only works if you are moving students to another one of your classes. If this option is not available, this student could be a Google Classroom or Clever student.
Student account created through Google Classroom/Clever:
If the "Move class" option is not available for a student, this means they were rostered through Google Classroom or Clever. In this case, please follow the instructions listed in our Move students guide to ensure a successful transfer of the student and of their Quill data. Do not remove the student from your class.
Student settings: Move a student to a different teacher's class
Do not remove the student from your class. Please fill out this Google Form, and notify us via email@example.com so we can process your request. This form will ask you to give us the email of each student, the class code for the class they are currently in, and the class code for the class they should be transferred into. To learn more about how to find your class codes, check out our Class Codes article.
