Achieve3000 diagnostic essay

What we did in class, today – After students received their Achieve3000 usernames and passwords, they took the diagnostic Levelset. Then, I demonstrated how to complete an Achieve3000 reading assignment.

  1. Go to your Achieve3000 mailbox.
  2. Click on one of the e-mails from Achieve3000.
  3. Click on the title of the article at the bottom of the message.
  4. Next, take the poll that appears.
  5. Click on “Article” and read the article.
  6. Once you have read the article, click on “Activity” and answer the questions.

If you did not finish the diagnostic today, log in to Achieve3000 before 8 p.m. tonight and complete the diagnostic. (The diagnostic is available from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m., Monday through Friday.)

While students are allowed two attempts to answer questions correctly, GUST only records the grade for the  first attempt. Each week, I will record the highest first marks for 3-4 readings. If you did not receive a 100 for each reading activity, you may read additional readings as long as they are completed before midnight on Friday.


  • If you submitted your diagnostic essay to Turnitin, review my comments by clicking on “Grade” and then placing your cursor over the call-out.
  • Read at least three Achieve3000 articles and complete the activities before midnight on Friday, Jan. 30.

What we will do in class on Wednesday, Jan 28 – We will begin the process of writing our first marked essay (comparison), so bring your laptop and a flash memory to class.
