How Does the AR Program Work?

*       Select a book from the library Based on his/her individual interests and reading levels, your child chooses a book from thousands of Accelerated Reader titles.  All AR books in our school library are labeled with a “blue dot.”  You may also check out books at the public library or buy books from bookstores.  Scholastic book orders also identifies Accelerated Reader books in each catalog.

*       Read the book Your child reads the book at his/her own pace.  Students may read their book at home or at school.

*       Take and AR test   After reading an AR book your child takes a computerized test.  Tests consist of multiple choice comprehension questions from the book.  The computer immediately scores the test, shows the number of correctly answered questions, and updates your child’s record.  Points are then awarded based on how well the student did.  As the students earn points they get closer to reaching their AR goal that is set for each month.
