Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader

AR is an effective software computer program that helps teachers manage and monitor children`s independent reading practice, used by an increasing number of schools to foster reading growth. It encourages students to read widely and independently, whilst allowing teachers to monitor their progress and provide support and guidance as necessary. Children choose a book at their own level and read it at their own pace. When finished, each child takes a short quiz on the computer – passing the quiz is an indication that they have understood what has been read. Immediate feedback is given to both the child and the teacher, from the online report produced. As part of the AR process, Star tests are administered at the start and at regular intervals throughout the program, to track and monitor progress periodically.
