The Achieve Story

Achieve

Macmillan has several market-leading software solutions which have served over 20 million students in the past decade. Five years ago we set out to take the best features of each solution and marry them into a platform that is intuitive and flexible.

Learning Science and Insights

Our Learning Science and Insights team helped guide the design and development process with the latest research and efficacy results from testing. Instructors and students co-designed with Macmillan for several years both in the classroom and in the lab. For more information on how our Learning Science team conducts their research or to check out new findings click here to view more of our Learning Science Research.

Two levels of Institutional Review Board

Macmillan is also the only publisher to secure two levels of Institutional Review Board approval for *every* study of Achieve—giving us unprecedented access to student performance and perceptions.

A carefully crafted platform

We have always developed carefully vetted and respected content, but we proceeded to refine our structure to develop software and implemented best practices such as Common Design Language, User Testing Laboratory, Robust User and Quality Testing Environment.

Proven Student Success

Achieve

Over three semesters (F19-S20-F20), we worked with 3,109 students engaging with more than 1 million unique assignments from 197 courses across 6 subjects. We collected a lot of data from those studies (that we are digging into further with more studies in subsequent semesters), and here’s what we have found so far:

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

Achieve

We have had a large number of students and instructors try out Achieve so far. Here's what a few of those users had to say about it.

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.”
