This is a general overview of the student dashboard - to see your specific students' dashboards, use the "view as student" feature (click here to learn how to view your students' dashboards.)

Table of Contents:

Classes View

Once your students log in to their Quill accounts, they'll first see the "Classes" page. This page houses all of their classes, including your class and any other Quill classes they might belong to.

The Student Center video below walks students through how to join new classes and view their existing classes:

Classwork View

After clicking on a class, students will see their Classwork. This view has two tabs: "To-do Activities" and "Completed Activities."

In the To-do Activities tab, students will see the activity packs (units) they have been assigned. Each activity shows the activity title, the tool icon indicating the type of activity, the due date, and the button to Start or Resume an activity.

In the Completed Activities tab, students will be able to view all completed activities. Students can see the tool icon, due date, and completion date and time for each activity.

Graded independent-practice activities (Quill Grammar, Quill Connect, Quill Proofreader) will show student's proficiency color range (green, yellow, or red.) Students have the option to replay any of these activities by clicking the Replay button.

Ungraded activities (including Quill Diagnostics) will show a blue square with the word Completed.

The video below provides an overview of the Classwork view on students' dashboards:

Student Resources

Students also have access to a student-facing "Resources" page.

The Resources page takes students to our Student Center. The Student Center provides students technical help, directions, videos, and extra resources, including:

Account Settings

To access account-specific settings, students can click on their names on the top right of the screen, then click Settings.

With a manually created account (where the student accesses Quill with a username/password,) they can access this page to edit first and last name, add/edit an email, change the password, and edit the time zone.

However, if the student's account is connected to Google or Clever, they are unable to edit names, email, or password, since this information is synced to Google/Clever. The student can only view account information and edit the time zone from their account settings.
