How does the yearly/weekly summary work?

To see your yearly/weekly summary, navigate to the Home tab in your Quill account.

At the top of this page, you will see a section containing the number of activities that you have assigned and the number of activities that your students have completed. Furthermore, you will see a dropdown menu to toggle between seeing Weekly and Yearly summary of these two metrics.

  • When viewing the Weekly summary of these metrics, you will see the number of activities that you have assigned and the number of activities that your students have completed within the current calendar week of Sunday to Saturday.

  • When viewing the Yearly summary of these metrics, you will see the number of activities that you have assigned and the number of activities that your students have completed within the calendar year of July 1 through June 30.

How are the summary metrics calculated?

Activities Assigned

The Activities assigned number is the total number of activities assigned to any student within your classes over the course of the selected time period.

For example, assume you have the Weekly time period selected. If you assigned one activity to Class A, which has 10 students, on Monday, and on Friday, you assigned a different activity to Class B, which has 12 students, you will see the number 22 for the Activities assigned number.

Activities Completed

The Activities completed number is the total number of activities completed by any student within your classes over the course of the selected time period.

For example, assume you have the Weekly time period selected. If Student A completes 2 activities on Monday, and Student B completes 5 activities on Friday, you will see the number 7 for the Activities completed number.


Frequently Asked Questions

Can I clear the Weekly/Yearly metrics?

At this time, you are unable to clear the metrics. You can only change the summary metric view from Weekly to Yearly.

How do I view student results beyond these metrics?

To view student results and detailed activity reports, click on the My Reports tab. We recommend accessing the Activity Summary report for a quick overview of student progress through the activities that they have been assigned.

I have an idea for a different metric. How can I submit my suggestion?

We're always looking for ways to improve Quill. If you'd like to see a new metric on the Home page, please submit your idea here.
