Brand new for 2021, we are excited to introduce Achieve – our customisable digital learning platform backed by extensive development and research. Proven to increase student engagement and boost performance, Achieve offers an e-book, course- and book-specific resources, a grade book, LearningCurve adaptive quizzing, assessment tools, insights and reporting, all with seamless integration options.
Macmillan has several market-leading software solutions which have served over 20 million students in the past decade. Four years ago we set out to take the best features of each solution and marry them into a platform that is intuitive and flexible.
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. Discover more about our Assessment Practice methods here
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. Discover more about our efficacy process here
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 a Common Design Language, User Testing Laboratory, Robust User and a Quality Testing Environment.
Firstly, Achieve engages students both inside and outside of the classroom, with pre-built assignments, adaptive quizzing and a variety of activities. It's also designed for students of all levels, whether they are high achievers or perhaps need a little extra support. At the heart of Achieve is the instructor and student experience, from our initial development to the ease of use, to the expert customer support. Instructors benefit from Achieve’s insights and reports, displayed in a simple and powerful interface
Achieve offers an e-book, course- and book-specific resources, a grade book, LearningCurve adaptive quizzing, assessment tools, insights and reporting, and integration options for a range of different subjects.
