What is Accelerated Reader?
Accelerated Reader is a computerized reading incentive program. The students may read books from the library, their classroom, or from home. Each book is assigned a points value depending on the difficulty and length of the book. Once the student completes the book, he or she can take a comprehension quiz on the computer. (Quizzes can only be taken at school.) Based on the percentage of correct answers, the student is awarded a number of points for each test completed. These points are then accrued throughout the year.
Through Accelerated Reader, we encourage our students to read more so that they become better readers and lifelong readers.

Want to find out if a particular book has an AR test?

Remember, if AR has a test for it, your child has access to that test at school.
You can search for book titles based on authors, topics, or titles of books. You can save titles to a book bag but once you log out, your information is lost. If you want to keep it, please print it out so you can reference it later.
