Accelerated Reader AR

Accelerated Reader (AR), the Accelerated Reader program is a computerized program that tests reading comprehension. Students select books on their reading level, read independently, and take an independent comprehension test on the computer. Each book is worth a certain number of points based on its length and reading level.

AR's advanced technology helps you:

  • Make essential reading practice more effective for every student.
  • Personalize reading practice to each student's current level.
  • Assess students' through Reading Practice quizzes. 
  • Build a lifelong love of reading and learning.

How It Works:

  1. Students choose books at their appropriate reading levels and read them at their own pace. 
  2. Student takes a quiz. 
  3. Student and teacher get immediate feedback on their reading progress.

Parents keep track of your student's progress!
