Our assignment flow is designed to help teachers find the perfect writing activities for their students. To assign a new activity to your students, click on the Assign Activities tab.
If you would like to assign a new activity, click on "Explore activities." If you would like to see which activities you've already assigned, click on "View assigned activities." Please note that you can also see the activities you've previously assigned by clicking on the "My Activities" tab.
Once you've clicked on "Explore activities," you'll be able to choose between assessing students' writing through a diagnostic or assigning activities from our library. Diagnostics tend to be most helpful with new groups of students, especially when teachers need to asses which skills students need to practice. Activities, on the other hand, tend to be most helpful when teachers already know which skills students need to practice.
If you choose to assess student writing with a diagnostic, you will be able to choose between the Starter, Intermediate, Advanced, ELL Diagnostic 1: Entering and Emerging, and ELL Diagnostic 2: Developing and Expanding. If you want to choose activities from our library, you will be able to choose between activity packs with both whole class and independent practice, packs with just independent practice, or custom activity packs.
To create your own activity pack, click on "Create your own activity pack." From here, you will be able to search for which Quill activities you would like to assign. Once you've selected the activities you'd like to assign by checking the box on the right hand side, click "select activities."
From here, you will be able to name your activity pack, choose a due date for your activities, and choose which classes or students you'd like to assign it to.
