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. Students get a percentage of these points based on how many of the test questions they get right. The program tracks their progress over the course of the school year.
Each class visits the library on a weekly basis. Your child will be checking out books that they can bring home to read with you. When they are finished, they will return the book to school and take an AR quiz. Check with your teacher to find out your class' library day and what your teacher expects for quizzing. Some of our older students may be able to take more than one quiz per week. The more you read, the more you'll succeed!
