As students complete Quill Reading for Evidence activities, you will have access to various student data reports that will show you how students completed each sentence stem and what feedback they received.
Table of Contents:
Quill Reading for Evidence activities are designed to help students improve, so we do not evaluate student performance with a score on these activities.
Students will not receive a grade on Reading for Evidence activities, just like our Quill Diagnostic, Quill Writing Skills Survey, and Quill Lessons activities. This is the message students will see on the onboarding pages for a Quill Reading for Evidence activity:
Activity Summary Report
On the Activity Summary report, Quill Reading for Evidence activities are indicated by a book icon. When students complete Reading for Evidence activities, the icon will be colored in blue to show the activity has been completed.
Hover your mouse over the completed activity square to see additional information about the specific activity. You will see when the student completed the activity and how much time they spent on the activity.
The bottom of this popup shows each concept the student encountered on the activity. The number in green indicates if the student used the concept correctly. The number in red indicates the number of attempts that the student used a concept or piece of evidence incorrectly.
Because is indicated by “Using Precise Evidence to Illustrate a Cause”
But is indicated by “Using Precise Evidence to Illustrate a Contrast”
So is indicated by “Using Precise Evidence to Illustrate a Consequence”
In the example below, the student:
Completed two revisions on the “so” sentence stem before using strong evidence
Completed one revision on the “because” sentence stem before using strong evidence
Used strong evidence on the first submission of the “but” sentence
Was reminded to put the evidence in their own words once during the activity
Activity Analysis Report
On the Activity Analysis report, you will see “N/A” for the score on Quill Reading for Evidence activities.
Click on a student’s name to view their responses to each sentence stem and the feedback they received.
On the Concepts Report, the Academic Writing category indicates a concept used in a Quill Reading for Evidence activity.
The percentage that you see on the Concepts Report shows the number of correct pieces of evidence used. In the example below, the student:
Used correct evidence for the so sentence stem 33% of the time
Used correct evidence for the because sentence stem 50% of the time
Used correct evidence for the but sentence stem 100% of the time
While Reading for Evidence activities are aligned to several Common Core ELA standards, the Standards Report will show standard [RI.9-10.1] (“Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.“) for Reading for Evidence activities.
The “Proficient” column will say “N/A” because the activities are not graded. You will still be able to see the number of students who have completed an activity with this standard, how many activities you have assigned that are aligned to the standard, and how much time your students have spent on the standard.
