Quill uses a stoplight system of green, yellow, and red scores. A green square indicates that the student scored 80-100%. A yellow square indicates the student scored 60-79%. A red square indicates that the student scored less than 60%. Encourage your students to go for green!

Scores

The score breakdown key is located at the top of the screen.

Completed Lessons, Connect, Proofreader, and Grammar activities will appear in color based on their scores as follows:

  • Green: At Proficiency, 80-100%

  • Yellow: Nearly Proficient, 60-79%

  • Red: Not Yet Proficient, 0-59%

Completed Diagnostics and Writing Skills Surveys will appear in blue to indicate it has been completed. Note: These are the only activities in the Activity Library to be marked as "Complete" instead of graded.

If a student has replayed an activity, their number of attempts will be in a blue circle in the upper right-hand corner of the box.

If a student has started but not completed an activity, the in-progress activities will appear in white with a timer in the upper right-hand corner of the box.

Incomplete activities will appear gray.

Activity Icons

The activity icon key is located directly under the score breakdown key.

Our activities are labeled with the following icons:

  • Magnifying Glass = Quill Diagnostic

  • Apple = Quill Lessons

  • Target = Quill Connect

  • Flag = Quill Proofreader

  • Puzzle Piece = Quill Grammar

Performance Breakdown

To view a comprehensive performance breakdown for an individual activity, hover your mouse over the activity box. This will tell you key information such as the activity's objective, the date the student completed the activity, the student's score, and a sub-concept list.

You can also see the student's average score across activities on the right-hand side of the Activity Summary.

Filter Classes, Activity Packs, and Dates

To view the activities that a different class has completed, use the class section filter in the top left hand corner of your screen.

To view the activities that your class/students have completed within a specific assignment/activity pack, use the activity pack filter at the top of the screen.

To view the activities that a given student has completed during a set period of time, use the date filter in the top right hand corner of your screen.

Grading with the Activity Summary

As students complete activities and go for green, you are given valuable information about their strengths, areas for growth, and daily progress. You can use the Activity Summary to grade at the concept level and for mastery-based learning. Encouraging students to replay activities until they reach proficiency can improve their writing skills, confidence, and persistence!
