Where Learning is Adventure

Accelerated Reader


Accelerated Reader (A.R.) is an online reading comprehension program that is fully supported by scientifically based research.  The program improves students' reading achievement. 
 
A.R. offers unlimited access to over 125,000 quizzes on books from publishers around the world.  Students can choose books from their classroom library, school library, public library, and even from home to read and then take a comprehension quiz online.  Quizzes can be taken from any computer that has Internet access.
 
Teachers are able to continuously monitor students' reading progress and ensure that they are reading at the appropriate level.
 
Students earn points for passing each quiz depending on the book level and the number of questions answered correctly.  Each Friday at our school's Flag Salute, students receive prizes for the A.R. points they have earned.
