Quests Marketplace – Submission guidelines
Submitting quests to the Marketplace is easier than ever with My Library! As before, any quest you submit should have a short description giving other teachers a clear idea of what it contains, as well as any relevant instructions to help them use it in their classroom.
Check that your quest is ...
- Complete: Your quest should include a starting point (introduction), several objectives (use as many or as few as needed), and an endpoint. Make sure to submit quests that are completed from beginning to end.
Appropriate: The language and themes of your quest should be appropriate for all students. Avoid strong or offensive language, shocking themes, discrimination, and violence.
Accessible: Your quest should be in English, and all its tasks and assignments should be publicly available to other teachers.
Proofread: Make sure to submit the final reviewed version of your quest. Check the story for consistency, grammar, and spelling mistakes before submitting your work.
Transferable: Your quest is readily usable by other teachers and provides adequate references to outside material (textbooks, tools, in-class documents, etc.).
- Original: You are the original creator of the quest’s story and tasks. You may submit a quest created by another teacher if you’ve significantly modified it or adapted it enough to make it your own.
You can improve your quest by:
Writing an original and compelling storyline: Using a story in a quest is not mandatory, but it does help students feel engaged with your content. Create a compelling story from scratch to make it a hit!
Featuring copyright-free content: Make sure that all the content — including images — that you use in your quest is either free of rights or that the source is properly cited.
Using self-paced objectives and branching paths: Using Classcraft features within your quest and promoting personalized and differentiated learning will make it that much more interesting for other teachers.
- Making it easy to use: Your quest is self-contained, meaning it doesn’t rely on sources, tools, and links that can be lost or deleted. Where possible, type or paste your task instructions directly in the quest and attach downloadable files. If necessary, embed videos and images and share Google Drive links.
Why was my quest denied?
The Classcraft team must approve any quest before it can appear on the Marketplace. If your quest is not accepted, it may be because it:
- Does not grant public access to the files and assignments (unless you're submitting the story only)
It's already on the Marketplace (the quest was created by another teacher)
It’s incomplete or unfinished (eg., it has no endpoint, its objectives are not connected, some tasks are empty)
- Its description doesn’t inform other teachers of the content or the story
Note: Since Google Classroom content can’t be shared with other teachers, the objectives will be converted to normal ones. To remedy this, you can briefly explain to teachers what materials or assignments they’ll be missing, either in the quest’s description or in the task itself, so that they may convert or replace the missing content.
