Updated over a week ago

This is a general overview of what students see in their Quill accounts. If you would like to see a Quill account for a specific student, please use the View as student feature.

Table of Contents


Classes page

When students log into their Quill accounts, they will first see the Classes page, which houses all of their Quill classes, including your Quill class and any other Quill classes in which they are rostered.

If students have not yet been rostered in any classes in Quill, they will see the Join Your Class prompt, where they can enter your class's class code.

The Student Center video below shows students how they may see the classes in which they are already rostered and become rostered in new classes.


Classwork page

After clicking on a class on the Classes page, students will see the Classwork page for that class. On the Classwork page for a class, students will see different information depending on whether their teacher has turned on or off the setting that allows students to see their percentage scores.

If the setting that allows students to see percentage scores is on

At the top of the Classwork page for a class, students will see a Your progress section where they will see the number of activities that they have completed and the time that they have spent on the activities that they have completed.

Clicking the dropdown arrow in the far right of the Your progress section reveals a dropdown menu where students may choose the time period for which they see the number of activities that they have completed and the time that they have spent on the activities that they have completed. Students may see this information for Today, This week, This month, or This school year.

Below the Your progress section, students will have access to the To-do activities tab and the Completed activities tab.

In the To-do activities tab, students will see the activities that they have been assigned, but that they have not yet completed. For each activity, they will see the activity name in the Activity field, the icon indicating the type of activity in the Tool field, the due date for the activity in the Due date field (if applicable), and the Start button or the Resume button for the activity.

In the Completed activities tab, students will see information about the activities that they have completed.

For any activity that is not scored (Quill Diagnostic, Quill Reading for Evidence, and Quill Lesson activities), students will see a blue square with the Completed copy in the Score field and will not see a corresponding Replay button.

For any scored independent-practice activity (Quill Grammar, Quill Connect, and Quill Proofreader activities), students will see the activity name in the Activity field, the icon indicating the type of activity in the Tool field, the due date for the activity in the Due date field (if applicable), the date and time when they completed the activity in the Completed date field, and a Replay button to replay an activity.

Furthermore, since the setting that allows students to see their percentage scores is turned on, for any scored independent-practice activity (Quill Grammar, Quill Connect, and Quill Proofreader activities), in the Score field, students' percentage scores and the color of the score range within which their percentage scores fall will be displayed.

  • Green means that students frequently demonstrated the skill being practiced in the activity while responding to the prompts and scored 83%-100% for the activity.

  • Yellow means that students sometimes demonstrated the skill being practiced while responding to the prompts and scored 32%-82% for the activity.

  • Red means that students rarely demonstrated the skill being practiced while responding to the prompts and scored 0%-31% for the activity.

Hovering over a student's percentage score will reveal a menu that shows information about the activity and the student's performance on the activity.

  • The Objectives section includes the writing skills that the student practiced while completing the activity.

  • The Published section includes the Publish date of the activity.

  • The Due section includes the Due date of the activity (if applicable).

  • The Score section includes the number and percentage of prompts to which the student submitted an optimal response out of the total number of prompts in the activity, the time and date when a student submitted the activity, and the time that the student spent completing the activity.

  • The Target Skills section includes the writing skills practiced in the activity, the number of prompts in the activity that addressed each of the writing skills practiced in the activity, the number of prompts for which the student submitted a correct response for each writing skill, and the number of prompts for which the student submitted an incorrect response for each writing skill.

  • The Why Green?/Why Yellow?/Why Red? section includes an explanation for the color of the square to the left of the percentage score for the activity.

The video below provides an overview of the Classwork page.


Resources tab

In the upper navigation bar of their Quill account, students will see a Resources tab, which takes students to the Student Center.

The Student Center provides resources about technical questions, directions for using Quill, and guide videos. Please some of the specific resources included in the Student Center below.

Check out the video below for more information on the Student Center.


Settings page

To access their Quill account settings, students can click on their name in the upper right corner of their Quill account and click the Settings option in the dropdown menu.

If a student has a manually created Quill account and logs into their Quill account with a username and password, they can access the Settings page to edit their first name and last name, add or edit the email associated with their Quill account, change their Quill password, and edit the time zone of their Quill account.

However, if a student's Quill account is linked to their Google account or Clever account, they will not be able to edit their name, email, or password, since this information is synced to their Google account or Clever account. In this case, the student will only be able to view their account information and edit the time zone.
