Accelerated Reader

Successful for over 25 years, Accelerated Reader (AR) is a powerful tool for monitoring and managing independent reading practice.  AR encourages substantial differentiated reading practice to create strong readers. Based on each student's independent reading level, AR helps teachers set personalized goals for each student, and guide students to books difficult enough to keep them challenged, but not so difficult to cause frustration.  In addition, AR helps teachers monitor students' vocabulary growth, literacy skills development, and other reading skills.  Below are the steps for using AR:

  1. Determine reading level. First, a student’s optimal reading level is determined through the STAR Reading Enterprise assessment. This assessment provides information on a student’s overall reading ability and suggests a range of book levels for each student called the “zone of proximal development”, or ZPD. An entire class can be screened in approximately 15 minutes.
  2. Set practice goals. Teachers then meet with each student to set three individualized reading practice goals based on reading quantity, quality, and difficulty and monitor progress toward those goals.
  3. Personalize practice. Personalized reading practice means students read books of interest at their own reading level. AR BookFinder makes it easy to find the perfect book.
  4. Students take an AR Quiz. AR offers more than 150,000 quizzes of five types on both fiction and nonfiction titles. Students have many different options for taking AR quizzes, including laptops, PCs, tablets, and NEO 2s, as well as through the AR Student App available on Apple devices.
  5. Receive instant feedback. AR provides teachers with immediate information, helping them monitor the comprehension skills of each student and inform further instruction or intervention. Students and parents get instant feedback to help motivate success with the use of the TOPS Report and Renaissance Home Connect.
