The Achieve Story

Macmillan has several market-leading software solutions which have served over 20 million students in the past decade. In 2015, we set out to take the best features of each solution and marry them into a platform that is intuitive and flexible.

Built in partnership with instructors and students

We used research and efficacy results from testing to design Achieve. Instructors and students then co-designed with Macmillan for several years both in the classroom and in the lab. We continue to research different aspects of Achieve, to determine what is effective and work with our Product Teams to make improvements based on the data.

Engaging Students with Active Learning

We understand the importance of Active Learning. Achieve includes plenty of opportunities for active learning, including integration with iClicker, our award-winning student response system. Achieve has many different tools for learning, such as videos, simulations, and animations, and the diverse question types and assignments that assess understanding of that material.

LMS Integration

You can have your students working directly in Achieve. Or have all your course content within your existing LMS/VLE. We can integrate Achieve and keep all your course content and student grades in one place.

Benefits & Features

  1. Course specific content

    Each Achieve course comes with unique, course-specific content that may include our award-winning e-books, pre-built assessments, and multimedia assets as well as support for pre-class preparation, in-class active learning, and post-class work and self-study.

  2. Adaptive Quizzing for Personalized Learning

    LearningCurve Adaptive quizzing provides personalized question sets and clear feedback based on each student’s correct and incorrect answers--offering an easy way for students to prepare for class by reviewing the e-book and then assessing their understanding of the key concepts.
