Accelerated Reader

  • Accelerated Reader (AR) is the most popular and successful reading product of all time. AR’s advanced technology helps you:

    • Make essential reading practice more effective for every student.
    • Personalize reading practice to each student’s current level.
    • Manage all reading activities including read toread with, and read independently.
    • Assess students’ reading with four types of quizzes: Reading PracticeVocabulary PracticeLiteracy Skills, and Textbook Quizzes.
    • Build a lifelong love of reading and learning.

     There are three steps to using Accelerated Reader:

    1. Students choose and read a fiction or non-fiction book, textbook, or magazine. Always check to make sure that it is an AR book at
    2. Students take the Reading Practice quiz. Students must pass with 60% or better; however, the points decrease as their percentage goes down (i.e. a book that is worth 10 points will earn 10 points for 100%, 9 points for 90%, etc).
