LaunchPad is Moving to Achieve!
Beginning with Fall 2024 classes, Achieve will replace LaunchPad as the courseware for new and existing BFW products. Achieve delivers the e-book, resources, and adaptive quizzing you love in a more intuitive interface, with easier assignability, and access to robust reports and analytics.
You don't have to do anything yet! If you'd like to get a head start and preview an Achieve sample course, simply request below. We'll be in touch in 2024 when it's time to move.
Achieve Incorporates Your Favorite LaunchPad Features
Each Achieve course comes with a BFW e-book uniquely developed for the course it serves. These e-books include highlighting, note-taking, and search functionality and can be accessed online or downloaded to multiple devices.
Teacher resources are easily accessible in Achieve. Your resources include the TE-book, pacing guides, handouts, graphic organizers, PD videos, and more. Your students will benefit from the flashcards, simulations, videos, and tutorials.
Most Achieve courses include LearningCurve, our adaptive quizzing engine with personalized question sets and clear feedback based on each student’s correct and incorrect answers. LearningCurve offers an easy way for students to prepare for class.
Upgrades You’ll Get in Achieve
Achieve’s interface provides a more seamless experience for both teachers and students. This interface is designed to enhance the user experience, streamline the number of clicks to content, and support this environment of teaching and learning.
Better Course Branching
Achieve uses Section Management instead of "branching." You can allow full or restricted access to your sections depending on the needs of your district/school.
Achieve’s reporting functionality provides user-friendly data and insights, enabling precise analysis for individual students or entire classes. Teachers can also filter reporting based on learning objectives, units, and more.
Increased Assignment Flexibility
Most assignment settings can be updated in a batch, allowing you to create or edit assignments quicker and easier than in LaunchPad.
Experience a more powerful gradebook designed to simplify and streamline the process of organizing and viewing student grades. You can now add categories to assignments and more easily create student groups and adjust grading policies.
