Accelerated Reader Program

Accelerated Reader (AR) is a computerized program that helps teachers, students and parents manage and monitor students reading practice. Students pick books within their reading range and read at their own pace. When finished, the student takes a short reading comprehension quiz on a school computer. AR gives both student and teacher immediate feedback based on the quiz results. This information is used to guide students to reading success. At the beginning of the school year students are given the STAR test to determine their ZPD (Zone of Proximal Development). Students select books based on results from this test and the goals set by their teacher. Students may read books selected from school, home or public libraries.
