Achieve for English
The instructors and students who participated in our co-design process identified their biggest challenges in the writing course, and we set out to solve them with features that provide opportunities for drafting, peer review, source check, reflection, and revision. The result is a flexible, integrated suite of tools for designing and facilitating writing assignments, paired with actionable insights that make studentsʼ progress toward outcomes clear and measurable.
Achieve Writing Tools
The content you trust plus the writing tools you need.
Built in collaboration with nearly 600 instructors and 1,000 first-year writing students, the Writing Tools in Achieve are designed to support best practices for commenting on student drafts.
The Revision Plan lets students take ownership of revision planning by helping them turn feedback into strategies for strengthening their writing. Revision planning creates accountability for students and provides instructors with additional insight into how well students understand the feedback they’ve received.
Insights and Reporting
Insights highlight student engagement, provide opportunities for intervention, and visualize trends in student progress from assignment to assignment. Easily track what students do with instructor and peer feedback, and use reflection data to understand students’ sentiments about their work in the course.
