Accelerated Reader
New in 2016–2017

We have adopted the Accelerated Reader (AR) program as part of our comprehensive literacy program here at Friends Christian School for first through eighth grades. Accelerated Reader is a computer program that helps manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. The student picks a book at his/her own level and reads it at his/her own pace.

Students are to read at least 20 minutes per day; some of that can be done in school, some at home. When finished, the child takes a short quiz on the computer (quizzes can only be taken at school during school hours under the direction of the teacher). Passing the quiz (85% or better) is an indication that the student understood what was read.

AR gives us feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher then uses to help the child set goals and direct ongoing reading practice. Children using AR choose their own books to read, rather than having one assigned to them. The teachers will help the children choose books at an appropriate readability level that are challenging without being frustrating, ensuring that the students can pass the quiz and experience success. Since they’re reading books at their reading and interest levels, they are likely to be successful.

Reading daily, within his/her own reading level, and passing quizzes is a proven way to increase reading comprehension. Best of all, the child will learn and grow at his/her own pace.

Books that have been labeled for the AR program can be checked out of the school library, the public library, and they can be purchased on Amazon.com or through Scholastic Books. Parents receive login information for Home Connect, a way to track their child’s progress by receiving quiz results right into their inbox. We are excited to partner with our parents, their child, and Accelerated Reader!
