Tips and Tricks When Using the Demo Account
Tip #1: Create an extra class in the demo account and practice moving students. This is a great way to practice moving manually added students for any upcoming roster changes. You can also practice adding and removing students from these classes.
Tip #2: Seach for and assign activities from the Activity Library. Navigate to the Assign Activities tab and click “Explore the activity library”. Practice using the filters on the left-hand side and preview, then select a few activities to create a custom activity pack.
Tip #3: Assign Diagnostic Recommendations. Quill will generate a plan of recommended activities once your students complete a diagnostic, and assigning the recommended activities is easy! Navigate to the Student Reports tab, Diagnostics report, navigate to the desired diagnostic, and click on the Practice Recommendations tab. Finally, click on “Assign Activities”. You can also practice modifying the pace of these recommendations following these steps.
Tip #4: After assigning a Growth Diagnostic to measure student growth, view the Growth Results Summary from the Growth Diagnostics report. This is a great way to preview what information you can get after students complete the Growth Diagnostics. After looking at the report, be sure to assign a Growth Diagnostic to your own classes!
Tip #5: Check out the various premium reports! If you’re wondering what these premium reports look like, you can view them by clicking the “Student Reports” tab, then clicking on any report with a gold star next to it. Activate your premium trial today to see the premium reports for your Quill classes!
Remember that the changes you do to this demo account are not saved and do not have any effect on your main account, so feel free to poke around! We hope these tips help you get accustomed to the Quill interface and save you time implementing Quill with your own classes!
