My Take

This is a good tool to reinforce the concepts I am teaching. It gives the students opportunities to practice independently with immediate feedback, which I like very much. I wish that there were more challenging "Reading for Evidence" assignments that ask the students to write at least a paragraph, but assume that is coming in the future.

How I Use It

I use Quill with my 10th-grade students. They are learning how to read for evidence using the new "Reading for Evidence" feature and how to combine sentences to increase sentence variability within their compositions. As a result, I have already noticed an improvement in many students' writing.
