Preview mode is available for all of our activities. When an independent practice activity is opened via preview, the activity will display the below menu on the left side of the screen, allowing you to switch between prompts and toggle between them as you'd like, rather than having to complete them sequentially.


Preview mode for Quill Lessons looks slightly different—the Preview menu will display at the very top of the screen, with an option to Open Student View as well.

*Note: Preview mode will not save your any responses to your dashboard - only activities completed by your students will display in your Student Reports tab.*
