The My Activities page serves as the home base for all of your assigned activities. From this page, located in between the Assign Activities tab and the My Student Reports tab, you can view and edit activities and activity packs and launch Quill Lessons. Learn how to navigate the My Activities page below:


Filtering by class

Clicking on the My Activities tab will bring you to a list of all of the activities that you have assigned to your students across all of your active Quill classes. You can use the dropdown menu filter at the top of the page to sort the activity packs that you see by class(es) to which these activity packs are assigned.


Removing activities from an activity pack

To delete an activity from an assigned activity pack, scroll to the activity pack in question. Then, find the activity you'd like to remove and click the "X" to the far right of that activity. This will immediately remove the activity (and all associated student data) from your students' dashboards and from your teacher dashboard as well.

**Please Note: This will also remove all student data and reports for that activity, so if you would like to keep the student data and reports associated with that activity, do not remove the activity from the activity pack.**


Deleting an activity pack

To delete an entire assignment or activity pack, scroll to the activity pack in question, and select the Delete activity pack option to the right of the activity pack name as demonstrated below. This will remove the entire activity pack (and all associated student data) from your dashboard and from your students' dashboards.

**Please Note: This will also remove all student data and reports for that activity, so if you would like to keep the student data and reports associated with that activity, do not remove the activity from the activity pack.**


Closing an activity pack

Closing an activity pack will remove that activity pack from your Open Activity Packs list and move this activity pack to your Closed Activity Packs list.

When an activity pack is closed, students will still see this activity pack in their student dashboards, but will not be able to interact with the activities in this activity pack. Furthermore, the student data associated with this activity pack will still be included in your student reports.

To close an entire activity pack, scroll to the activity pack in question and select the Close activity pack option to the right of the activity pack name as demonstrated below. This will move the activity pack to your My Closed Activity Packs list, disable students from interacting with the activities in this activity pack in their students' dashboards, but keep the activity pack's associated data in your student reports.


Renaming an activity pack

To rename an entire activity pack, scroll to the activity pack in question, and select the Rename activity pack option to the right of the activity pack name, as demonstrated below.

You can then change the name and click Save to immediately update the activity pack name across all assigned students' dashboards.


Changing due dates for an activity within an activity pack

To change and/or add a due date for an individual activity, simply click into the Due date field for that activity and select a date from the calendar pop-up menu.

You can also delete a due date by clicking on the due date in question, highlight it with your mouse, and click the "delete" button on your keyboard.


Changing publish dates for activities within an activity pack

You can manage your assigned activities from the My Activities tab. To view or change the Publish date for an activity, navigate to the activity pack in the My Activities page, click into the Publish date section for that activity, and select the new Publish date calendar pop-up menu.

The checkmark next to the date indicates that this activity is published and visible in the assigned students’ dashboards:

The clock next to the date indicates this activity is scheduled to show at a later time or date, and it is not yet visible in students’ dashboards:


Changing the order of activities in an activity pack

To arrange the order of activities within an activity pack, you can scroll to the activity pack in question and use the Order tool, indicated by the icon with four stacked horizontal lines, in the leftmost column to re-order the activities in that activity pack. Click and hold onto this icon to select the activity and move the activity within the activity pack.

This will immediately update the order in which these activities appear in the activity pack on your students' Quill dashboards as well.


Adding/Removing students from an activity pack

In the My Activities page, you can add or remove students assigned to or from an activity pack. For instance, if you'd like to add a new student to a previously assigned activity pack, you can use this feature to do so.

Before adding/removing students, you can check to see how many students to whom you have assigned the activity pack. Please see the screenshot below.

Clicking the Add/remove students assigned button will then bring you to a Select by Student dropdown menu.

In this Select by Student dropdown menu, you can check off the box next to a student's name to add them to the activity pack.

Then, you'll click the green Update Students button at the bottom of the page to save your changes.

Similarly, if you'd like to remove an activity pack from a student's assignments, you can use this feature to de-select a student from an assignment.

**Please Note: If you uncheck the box next to/remove a student who was already assigned this activity pack, the student's data associated with this activity pack will be removed from your dashboard, so please keep the names of students whose data you would like to keep checked.**


Adding an activity to an activity pack

To add an activity to an already existing activity pack, scroll to the activity pack in question. At the bottom of the activity pack, select the "Add activities" button.

You'll then be re-directed to the Activity Library, where you can search for and select the additional activities to add to your activity pack. Upon pressing "Assign", the activities will be added to your activity pack, and those changes will be immediately reflected on your students' dashboards.


Launching lessons

Lastly, you can use the My Activities tab to manage all of your whole-class Quill Lessons. At the top of the page, select the Launch Lessons option, which will bring you to a list of all of your active Quill Lessons. Click the Launch Lesson button next to the Quill Lesson you would like to begin.

Next, select your preferred edition of the lesson (the standard version or your customized version), and begin!
