If you have an existing Canvas course integrated with Achieve content that you would like to copy, either for a future term or to create multiple course sections, you can do so by following the instructions below.

You can duplicate your single course from Achieve homepage by following the instructions in this help article: Achieve > Copy a course. Once you have created the course copy and set a start and end date, it will be available for linking to Canvas.

Duplicate your Achieve course

For each course you plan on teaching in Canvas, you will need a separate corresponding Achieve course. These instructions assume you already have an Achieve course set up the way you like (let's call it Achieve Course #1) and you want to copy it to create another course (called Achieve Course #2).

Go to your new Canvas course shell

Canvas course shells will be set up by your school's Canvas administrator. These instructions assume you already have a Canvas course set up the way you like (let's call it Canvas Course #1) and you want to copy the content into another course (called Canvas Course #2). We'll start this process from within Canvas Course #2.


Before copying Canvas Course #1, please make sure that there are no Achieve assignments already in Canvas Course #2. If you have any Achieve assignments in Canvas Course #2 before copying Canvas Course #1, copying will cause duplicate assignments and gradebook columns in Canvas Course #2

We recommend deleting any Achieve assignments and gradebook columns in Canvas Course #2 before copying.

Import content from Canvas Course #1 into Canvas Course #2

Import Course Content

In Canvas Course #2, click Settings [1] at the bottom left. Click Import Course Content [2] in the list at the right.

Select content to import

  • If you are not copying a previous term's section under a Section Manager, we recommend copying the entire course by selecting All content. This method ensures that the assignment links will still be associated properly after copying. You can always delete undesired content after copying.
  • If you are copying a previous term's section under a Section Manager, we recommend copying only the non-Achieve items by selecting Select specific content.
    • Be sure to select the Course Settings for import so that the Macmillan Learning App that is required for integration automatically appears on the left side of Canvas Course #2.

    • If you see External Tools as one of the content types to select, expand it to check if it contains a tool called Macmillan Learning or Achieve. If it does, make sure to select it.

    • Make sure to select desired Assignments and Modules. Achieve content will be located in Canvas Modules and Assignments.
