is a computer program that helps teachers manage and
monitor children's independent reading practice. Your
child can pick a book at his or her own level and reads
it at his or her own pace. When finished, your child
takes a short quiz on the computer. (Passing the quiz is
an indication that your child understood what was read).
Accelerated Reader gives both children and teachers
feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher
then uses to help your child set targets and direct
ongoing reading practice.
Children using Accelerated Reader choose their own books
to read, rather than having one assigned to them. This
makes reading a much more enjoyable experience as they
can choose books that are interesting to them.
