How can I check if I have previously assigned an activity?

You can see if an activity has been previously assigned from the My Activities tab or during step 2 of the assignment process.

To help you avoid assigning duplicate activities, Quill indicates whether activities have been assigned to students in the past.

Access your list of assigned activities on the My Activities page

The My Activities page serves as the home base for all of your assigned activities. From this page, you can filter by class and view all of the activity packs and individual activities that have been assigned to that class. Learn more about the My Activities tab here.

Tip ๐Ÿ’ก: You can use the keyboard shortcuts, Ctrl+f and Cmd+f, to search for and quickly find specific activities or activity packs by name.

Review activities when assigning a new activity pack

Another way to check if an activity has been assigned is during the process of assigning a new activity pack. After selecting activities to add to a new activity pack (either through the activity library or by choosing a featured activity pack), you will be taken to the Review and assign page to manage the details of the new activity pack before assigning it.

Scroll down to the Review activities and pick due dates step. The fields in the Previously assigned column will indicate whether or not an activity has been assigned to any of your students before.

If the field is empty, then the activity has not been assigned to any of your students before. If the field has an icon of a person with a checkmark, then the activity has been assigned to at least one of your students before.

Hovering your mouse over the icon displays the name of the existing activity pack containing that activity, when it was assigned, to which classes it was assigned, and to how many students it was assigned.

In the activity pack below, most activities have not yet been assigned, but the activity, Subject-Verb Agreement - Mixed Topics 5, has been assigned to students before, as indicated by the icon.

If you do not wish to assign the activity to students, you can...

  • Click the X icon to the far right of the activity's name to remove it from the activity pack.

  • Or, you can proceed to the Choose classes or students step on the Review and assign page and uncheck the classes or students that have completed those activities before. Keep in mind that any students or classes who are unchecked will not be assigned any of the activities in the activity pack.
