The "My Activities" tab serves as the home base for all of your assigned activities. From this page (located in between the "Assign Activities" tab and the "Student Reports" tab), you can filter, view, and edit all of your active assignments, delete activities and/or activity packs, and launch lessons.
Filtering by Class
Clicking on the "My Activities" tab will bring you to a full page list of all of your current active assignments, across all of your active Quill classes. You can use the "classes" filter at the top of the page to sort your page view by class (demonstrated in the screenshot below).
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 un-assign, and click the "x" to the far right of that activity. This will immediately remove the activity from your students' dashboards, and from your teacher dashboard as well, including all results/student completion reports for that activity.
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 (including all results/student completion reports) from your dashboard, and from your students' dashboards.
Renaming an Activity Pack
To rename an entire assignment or 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 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—simply click on the due date in question, highlight it with your mouse, and click the "delete" button on your keyboard.
Changing the Activity Order Within an Activity Pack
To change the order of activities within an activity pack, scroll to the activity pack in question and use the "Order" tool in the left-most column to re-order the activities in that pack.
This will immediately update the order in which these activities appear on your students' Quill dashboards as well (provided the activities are not yet completed).
Adding/Removing Students from an Activity Pack
You can also use the "My Activities" page to add or remove students to or from an assignment. 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 you've assigned the pack to (demonstrated below).
Clicking the "Add/remove students assigned" button will then bring you to a "Select by Student" drop-down menu, where you can check off the box next to a student's name to add them to an assignment.
Then, click the green "Update Students" button at the bottom of the page to save your changes. This will not re-assign the activity to (or affect in any way) the students that were already assigned.
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.
*Note: Removing a student from an activity pack will also remove all of their associated activity sessions/scores for that pack from your dashboard.*
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.
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 Lessons.
Click the "Launch Lesson" button next to the Lesson you'd like to begin.
Next, select your preferred edition of the lesson (the standard version or your customized copy), and begin!
