Accelerated Reader (AR) provides daily information about student reading and makes it easy to continuously monitor comprehension, track the time students spend reading, and differentiate reading practice. A student’s data profile is complete only when it goes beyond test scores, showing the full picture—reading achievement data and how well, how much, and at what difficulty level students are reading.

AR’s advanced technology helps you:
  • Make essential reading practice more effective for every student.
  • Personalize reading practice to each student’s current level.
  • Manage all reading activities including read to, read with, and read independently.
  • Assess students’ reading with four types of quizzes: Reading Practice, Vocabulary Practice, Literacy Skills, and Textbook Quizzes.
  • Build a lifelong love of reading and learning.

Daily Class-Level Information

The Diagnostic Report helps track the key indicators of successful reading practice—quality (average percent correct) quantity (time spent reading), and difficulty (average ATOS book level)—and pinpoint issues as they arise.

Daily Student-Level Information

The TOPS Report prints after each AR quiz to show students their daily accomplishments and progress towards personal goals.

Professional Development

AR data provides critical insight into whether students are able to transfer the discrete reading skills you are teaching to their overall ability to read and comprehend books. Get the most out of your data by learning AR Best Practices through our Professional Development services.
