    What is Accelerated Reader?

    Accelerated Reader (AR) is a program designed to encourage students to read. AR tests student comprehension of books they have read using an online computer program.



    • Goals and Points: Your child’s homeroom teacher assigns a points goal to each student for each nine week grading period. 


    • Most books in our library have an AR test available. Those books are marked with a dot sticker to show they have a test.


    •  Each book has a point value, which is the maximum number of points that can be earned from that book if the student scores 100% on the quiz.


    •  Our district subscribes to the online AR program, which means our students have access to every AR test available.
