How does Quill categorize activities by CCSS Grade Level and Readability Level?

Learn about the different standards that Quill uses to categorize activities.

Updated this week

All Quill activities are categorized by Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Readability Level to help teachers gauge the approximate difficulty level of the activity before they choose to assign it to their students.

In Quill's activity library, teachers have the option to filter by either Readability Level or CCSS Grade Level in the menu of filters on the left side of the page.

The Readability Level filter categorizes activities by a grade level score based on a series of text complexity systems, such as Lexile, Renaissance ATOS, and the Common Core State Standards. Since Quill activities focus on building writing skills, assigning an activity with a lower Readability Level can sometimes better enable students to practice the writing skill.

The CCSS Grade Level filter categorizes all activities by Common Core State Standard grade level and other classifications, such as Benchmark Assessments.
