Proven Student Success

Based on a survey of Achieve users in Fall of 2021 with over 200 instructor and over 3000 student responses.

Purposeful usage of Achieve is effective.

Students using more of their courses’ assignments and having higher grades on those assignments, had higher exam scores. Students with higher grades on their assignments (gradebook average) could expect to be 8 points higher on exams. Students that use or engage with less than the median student in each course can expect to perform 4% to 12% lower on their exams (depending on how much less work the student did), while students that use more than the typical, perform 1.5% to 3% higher on their exams.

Hear from Users

Here’s what instructors and students are saying about Achieve.

I found Achieve was readily accessible and was not complicated to pick up or to use anywhere, any time.”


Being able to go over something as many times as you would like till it is ironed into your brain is nice. I like being able to coincide assignments with exams to make sure I understand the content.”

As I continue to progress in my position, there are more responsibilities outside of the classroom that require more of my time. Having Achieve relieves some stress for this course as I know it takes less time for me to prepare things on my own.”

Ryan Elsenpeter

For some reason, these students worked together far more than is common. Like a lot more. They have long meetings in the library several times a week, and a significant portion of the class goes. It is, in one word, amazing.”

William Griffiths

The pre-lecture activities helped the students to participate more in the class.”
