Accelerated Reader™ is a guided reading intervention used to supplement regular reading instruction in K–12 classrooms. Its aim is to improve students’ reading skills through reading practice and quizzes on the books students read. TheAccelerated Reader™ program calls for students to select and read a book and then take a computerized quiz based on the book’s content and vocabulary. The computer software then provides teachers with information on the students’ performance on the quiz, which allows teachers to monitor student progress and identify students who may need more reading assistance.
At Wheatland Center School students begin using Accelerated Reader in second grade and continue through 8th grade. The program is managed by their reading teacher. The classroom teachers set goals and levels for students based on their STAR reading assessments. STAR reading assessments are given by the teachers 3 times a year (fall, winter, and spring). Students may test on any book that is a part of the Accelerated Reader database. To determine whether your child's book is on the list, please use ARBookfind.
