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.
