What is A.R.?


AR stands for Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader is a GREAT computer software program that monitors student reading of certain designated Accelerated Reader books. In this program, students read books of their choice and take short quizzes on the computers at school. The child can be read to, read with, or they can read independently. They then get prizes based on points they accumulate. These quizzes can be taken at library time or in the regular classroom. The student, the teacher and the parents then receive feedback on the students' performance. These quizzes do not count towards report card grades.

Every book for which there is an (AR)quiz has a point value based on its readability and length. This level is found on a label attached to the books binder. The first number indicates the grade level. For example, 3.9 means the 9 month of 3rd grade. The second number indicates the point value of the book. For example, .5 means a half point. Longer books and books written at higher levels are worth more points than short, easy books. After a student takes a quiz, he receives points base on the book's point value and how well he did on the quiz. For example if the book was worth .5 and the child got all 5 questions correct, they would receive .5 points. If they got 4/5 correct they would receive .4 points etc. If your child is unable to pass the quizzes, it means they are choosing a book which is above their reading level. They can not go back and re-take any quizzes. The prize totals are adjusted according to grade level. For example a child reading on a 2nd grade level would not be expected to get as many points as a child reading on a 7th grade level because the 7th grade level books are longer and harder and worth more points than the 2nd grade books. Every time your child takes an AR quiz, you will receive a TOPS report. This report shows you the points your child has scored on that particular quiz and the points they have for the year.

We are encouraging all students to participate in this excellent program and would like parents to help out by having your kids read at home. It's a great way to ensure that your child will succeed in school. Above is a link for you to search all the avaliable AR book quizzes.  When you take your child to the library, buy a book from a book order or book store, or give relatives ideas for Christmas gifts, be sure to check out this list and get your child AR books! Be sure to look for the book level to get the appropriate book.
