You can use Quill without creating student accounts or saving student data. Please see our activities aligned to the Common Core State Standards Quill activity is publicly accessible from https://www.quill.org/activities/
However, our team strongly recommends creating accounts for your students if you'd like to have access to students' responses to prompts and the feedback that students receive, track student progress, have students see and complete activities in their Quill dashboards, and have access to Quill's extensive data reports. Creating student accounts is easy and completely free! Click here to learn how to get started with Quill.
Below, we have described the process of using Quill without creating student accounts, which is only commended for teachers who cannot create student accounts (due to data privacy) or who are looking to learn about how Quill works before opening an account.
Directions for using Quill without student accounts
If you would like to share activities with your students without creating student accounts, you can share a link for the activity with your students.

To share a link for an activity with a student, choose an activity you'd like to share with your students from this page, copy and paste the link (URL) and share the link with your students through email, through Google Classroom, or by writing the URL on the board.
