Learn about the recommended progression of completing activities on Quill.

Updated over a week ago

While our activities are aligned with the Common Core State Standards, there is no fixed progression with which students need to complete them. Teachers have all of our activities available to them, and they may choose to assign any activity that they would like their students to complete.

However, we recommend that teachers assign the Starter Baseline Diagnostic (Pre) to their students as a starting point. Click here to learn more about how to assign a Quill Diagnostic.

Once students have completed the Starter Baseline Diagnostic (Pre), Quill will create a plan of practice recommendation activities for each student based on their performance on the Quill Diagnostic. These are located in the Practice recommendations report of the Diagnostics report in the My Reports tab.

Assigning practice recommendation activities to students provides approximately 8 to 10 weeks of practice if students complete 2 to 3 activities per week.

Once students complete all of the practice recommendation activities for the Starter Baseline Diagnostic (Pre), teachers may assign the Starter Growth Diagnostic (Post), which is the Growth Diagnostic (Post) that corresponds with the Starter Baseline Diagnostic (Pre), to measure students' growth in the writing skills assessed by the starter Baseline Diagnostic (Pre) and Starter Growth Diagnostic (Post).
