Assign Quill Lessons from the Practice recommendations report

When your class completes a Quill Diagnostic that you assigned to them, Quill will recommend a practice recommendation activity pack of Quill Lessons associated with a writing skill to the class if more than 50% of students in the class demonstrate a need for instruction in that writing skill. You can see and assign these practice recommendation activity packs from the Practice recommendations report.

To assign these practice recommendation activity packs containing Quill Lessons from the Practice recommendations report, please navigate to the Diagnostics report in the My Reports tab.

Then, click the View results and recommendations button that corresponds with the Quill Diagnostic whose practice recommendation activity packs of Quill Lessons you would like to assign.

Then, click the Practice recommendations tab in the menu on the left side of the subsequent page.

Then, scroll to the Whole class instruction heading at the bottom of the page.

The practice recommendation activity packs of Quill Lessons that have a Quill icon and are highlighted in green are the practice recommendation activity packs that Quill has recommended based on your class's performance on the Quill Diagnostic.
