The Accelerated Reader program is a computerized program that assesses reading comprehension. Students select books at 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. Students are encouraged to read at their lexile level. As they advance in reading skill, their teacher will move them up.
We have access to over 200,00o tests with books continuously being added to the program. Teachers and parents have a personalized link that allows them to monitor a student’s progress. The links are provided below.
