Accelerated Reader


Accelerated Reader makes the essential practice component of the reading curriculum more personalized and effective, and it provides students with daily feedback on all three types of reading practice (read to, read with and independent reading).

Learn comprehension, vocabulary development, literacy skills development and textbook reading.


  • Step 1: Log in to Accelerated Reader and Choose a Book

    The students choose to read a fiction or nonfiction book, textbook or magazine. Teachers monitor reading, including guided, paired, literature-based or textbook reading.

  • Step 2: Take a Quiz

    Students take an online quiz to test the comprehension of their reading.

  • Step 3: Access Your Learning

    Using any combination of more than 30 different reports immediately generated by the software, teachers can evaluate student reading, comprehension, amount of reading, diagnostic information and other variables. In addition, AR helps teachers monitor each student’s vocabulary growth, literacy skills development and reading skills taught through basal readers and other reading textbooks.
