- Best Practice: We recommend first-time users to begin by assigning one of Quill’s diagnostics to get a good overview of students’ writing skills. When Students complete a diagnostic, Quill will create an individualized learning plan for each student, so it’s also an easy and fast way to assign activities to students.
Available Diagnostics: Quill currently offers three diagnostics: the Starter, the Intermediate and the ELL Diagnostic.
