New Accelerated Reader Program
As a progress-monitoring system that promotes guided independent reading practice,
Accelerated Reader software serves three primary purposes:
• AR provides quick and accurate assessments of whether students have read and
understood trade books that they have selected and textbook passages that have
been assigned to them.
• It assigns point values for each AR Reading Practice Quiz taken. Point values are a
factor of book level and performance on quizzes. Points accumulate during the
school year, and are a way for teachers to monitor students’ reading volume.
• The system tracks student performance on AR quizzes over time.
AR provides a way for educators to monitor and guide reading practice and ensure
success for their students through goal setting.
