We just added a number of new features to Achieve in order to make your experience (and that of your students) even better in 2021. Here’s a quick recap of the changes.

Foundational Experience



  • Updates to completion status indicators in the item for instructor and students




  • If you integrate your Achieve course with your LMS, nongraded content can now be integrated in addition to any graded assignments you have integrated. 

Reporting and Insights




  • Students are now able to meet MLA and APA style guide requirements (e.g. page numbers, headers, and works cited) and access in-tool support to ensure proper documentation; instructors are able to view properly MLA/APA formatted documents as well.




  • Students can take practice and final tests past the due date without instructors having to set a late penalty. Students submitting past the due date will receive 0 in the gradebook but they will no longer be blocked from moving on to the study plan. Instructors can still customize the late penalty in diagnostic settings.




  • New gradebook categories added to a section manager will be reflected in restricted access sections



  • The help has been improved and expanded (and moved to the bottom left of your screen) to make it easier to get point of service help when you need it.
