What is Accelerated Reader?
Accelerated Reader (AR) is a computer based reading program that helps determine student reading comprehension and tracks classroom reading goals. Teachers will assign a reading range to help students select books that will expand reading levels without overly frustrating students.Students then pick books within their reading range and take short, multiple choice computer quizzes that test their reading comprehension. These quizzes are called “Reading Practice” quizzes. Reading practice quizzes provide immediate feedback and show progress towards the reading goals set by each teacher.
