Understand the squares on the Activity Summary

Activity square icons

The icons in each activity square indicate the type of activity that the activity square represents. Please see the activity icons key at the top of the Activity Summary report

  • The magnifying glass icon represents a Quill Diagnostic, which is the tool for assessing students' writing skills.

  • The apple icon represents Quill Lessons, which is our tool for teacher-led whole-class or small-group instruction.

  • The bullseye icon represents Quill Connect, which is our sentence-combining tool.

  • The flag icon represents Quill Proofreader, during which students fix errors in text passages.

  • The puzzle piece icon represents Quill Grammar, during which students practice basic grammar skills.

  • The book icon represents Quill Reading for Evidence, during which students read a text and use evidence from the text to complete writing prompts.

Activity square colors and statuses

  • A blue activity square indicates that the student completed the activity, but that the activity is not scored. Please note that Quill Diagnostics, Quill Lessons, and Quill Reading for Evidence activities are not scored.

  • A green activity square indicates that the student completed the activity, frequently demonstrated the relevant writing skill, and earned an activity percentage score of 83-100%.

  • A yellow activity square indicates that the student completed the activity, sometimes demonstrated the relevant writing skill, and earned an activity percentage score of 32-82%.

  • A red activity square indicates that the student completed the activity, rarely demonstrated the relevant writing skill, and earned an activity percentage score of 0-31%.

  • A green, yellow, or red activity square with a number in the upper right corner indicates that the student has replayed the activity. The number in the upper right corner indicates the number of times that the student has completed the activity, and the color of the activity square indicates the proficiency score for the most recent replay of the activity.

  • A light blue activity square with a blue pie chart in the upper right corner indicates that the student has started, but not yet completed, the activity.

  • A gray activity square with a clock in the upper right corner indicates that the activity has not yet been published in students' Quill accounts and is scheduled to be published at a later date and time.

  • A gray activity square with a lock in the upper right corner indicates that the activity is in a practice recommendation activity pack that is locked, which further indicates that practice recommendation activity packs have been assigned to students with the Staggered Release method. When practice recommendation activity packs are assigned to students with the Staggered Release method, students must complete all of the activities in the currently unlocked activity pack before the next consecutive activity pack is unlocked.

  • A gray activity square indicates that the activity has been assigned to the student, but that the student has not yet started the activity.
