Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader - from Renaissance Learning

Accelerated Reader is a structured level reading program from Renasissance Learning. The school subscribed to Accelerated Reader Enterprise which provides access to over 140,000 quizzes. 
Each of the books within the classroom are labeled on the inside cover for the AR program.  You will find the reading level of the book itself as well as the number of points that each book is worth.  The books within the school library are also labeled. Of course, students are more than welcome to read any other book that is non-labeled and still receive credit.

When students complete a book, they may take a quiz at school on the computers. If a student earns 100% comprehension on a quiz, then they earn all of the points possible. The goal with the Accelerated Reading program will be to earn 20 Accelerated Reader points for each trimester.  To attain their 20 point goal, students are expected to read at least 20 minutes a night from their AR book in addition to time dedicated within class.  In addition to the points earned, students are aiming for an average comprehension rate of 85%. 

Students are given an initial reading range for AR at the beginning of the school year.  After reading two books and quizzing with success on them, students can have their levels adjusted upwards. Students must achieve 60% comprehension or better to earn points.  Students can retake a quiz one time if they do not achieve 60% in a week.
