Tips for assigning practice recommendation activities

See tips for assigning practice recommendation activity packs after students complete a Quill Diagnostic.

Updated over a week ago

When students complete a Quill Diagnostic, Quill will create a plan of practice recommendation activity activities for each student based on their performance on their Quill Diagnostic. Read below to see tips for assigning these practice recommendation activities to your students and how you can best leverage these practice recommendation activities.

Table of Contents


Access the Practice recommendations report

To access the Practice recommendations report, please navigate to the Diagnostics report in the My Reports tab.

On the Diagnostics report, you will see each Quill Diagnostic that has been assigned to your classes. Use the dropdown menu in the upper left corner to select a class and only see the Quill Diagnostics assigned to that class.

To view the reports for a specific Quill Diagnostic, click the View results and recommendations button for that Quill Diagnostic.

Click the Practice recommendations tab in the menu on the left side of the subsequent page.


Stagger the release of practice recommendation activities

When you click the Assign activity packs button on the Practice recommendations report, a menu prompting you to choose either Staggered Release or Immediate Release will appear.

The Staggered Release option assigns every recommended (checked) practice recommendation activity pack to students; however, students can only access and complete the activities in one practice recommendation activity pack at a time. They must fully complete the activities in the open practice recommendation activity pack before unlocking the next consecutive practice recommendation activity pack.

The Immediate Release option assigns every recommended (checked) practice recommendation activity pack to students, and students can immediately access all of the activities in every assigned practice recommendation activity pack.

Preview practice recommendation activities

On the Practice recommendations report, click the (?) icon next to the right of the name of the practice recommendation activity pack you would like to preview.

Clicking this icon will bring you to a page, where you can see a summary and the content of the activity pack. To preview a specific activity in the practice recommendation activity pack, click the Preview hyperlink to the far right of the activity's name.

Recommended frequency of completing practice recommendation activities

In general, completing 2 to 4 activities per week is a good frequency of completing activities. Since each activity takes approximately 10-15 minutes, and each practice recommendation activity pack contains between 4 and 7 activities, teachers can generally expect a practice recommendation activity pack to be completed within 1 to 2 weeks. Of course, students may need more or less time depending on the number of the activities in the activity pack, the level of difficulty of the activities, and students' varying levels of proficiency.


Unassign practice recommendation activities

To unassign a practice recommendation activity or activity pack, please navigate to the My Activities page.

Then, find the activity pack or activity that you would like to unassign.

If you would like to unassign an activity pack from all students who have been assigned the activity pack, click the Delete activity pack hyperlink to the far right of the activity pack's name.

If you would like to unassign an activity pack from only some students out of all of the students who have been assigned the activity pack, click the Add/remove students assigned button.

If you would like to unassign an activity from all students who have been assigned the activity pack, click the X icon to the far right of the activity's name.
