Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader (AR) is a computer application that helps schools manage and monitor children's independent reading practice.  Students choose the books they are interested in reading from a teacher approved list based on appropriate grade specific reading levels.  After completing a book, students take web-based quizzes which help in the assessment of individual comprehension and student literacy goals.

What does AR Home Connect do?

Allows parents and students to log in to a website and view the student’s AR quizzes and progress towards goals.  Access to online results promotes discussion between parents and students, which can make reading practice even more effective.  In addition, parents can specify up to six email addresses to receive automatic updates in English and Spanish on their student’s reading progress.

Important:  Students cannot take AR quizzes at home.  Quizzes can only be taken at an on- campus school computer.  AR Home Connect allows parents to view the results of AR quizzes.
