New for Fall 2023
Reusing Content Across Courses
Save time and effort by copying and reusing saved work such as custom assessments created and included in an Achieve course to another course — all with just a few clicks! You can quickly customize your courses by drawing from already-created work, making it easier to deliver unique and impactful lessons tailored to your student's needs.
Adjust Due Dates Across Terms
Set up your new courses with ease by carrying over assignment dates from previous terms or sections. You can easily reset the due dates for all assignments based on the first assignment's date — or choose not to copy over any dates at all! This eliminates the need to manually input each individual due date, making it much easier to set up your course.
Batch Shift Due Date
Effortlessly manage multiple assignments by using our Batch Shift Due Dates feature. Save yourself valuable time and eliminate the hassle of manually adjusting each deadline individually. This feature is especially effective when setting up sections with slightly different deadlines or addressing unforeseen circumstances that impact an entire set of due dates.
You can now add TAs to your courses and grant them grading permissions while limiting other instructor rights. This streamlines course management by enabling TAs to interact with the Gradebook as "restricted instructors," allowing easy addition or removal of TAs as needed.
Bulk Due Date Extension
Save time by extending due dates in bulk for entire sets of Achieve assignments — for individuals or groups of students. This is particularly helpful in cases where students are having difficulty completing a set of assignments within its assigned timeline. By extending the due date for the set of assignments you can give more time without having extensive work to manually adjust each assignment’s due date one by one.
Drag and Drop Due Date Extension from Calendar
With this extension feature, assignment due dates can be easily adjusted for individual students, groups, or the entire class straight from the calendar. This handy tool streamlines the process, saving time and making it simpler than ever to grant extensions.

Pre-created Quizzing in iClicker
