At its heart, Accelerated Reader is simple. A child reads a book, takes an online quiz, and gets immediate feedback. Children respond to regular feedback and are motivated to make progress with their reading skills.
Accelerated Reader gives children significantly greater choice in levelled books and quizzes than any comparable reading programme.
Over 27,000 reading practice quizzes are available on books from over 300 publishers and imprints.
Children develop reading skills most effectively when they read appropriately challenging books – difficult enough to keep them engaged but not so difficult that they become frustrated. This is their ‘Zone of Proximal Development’ (ZPD).
The STAR assessment that comes with Accelerated Reader ensures children are able to choose books at their appropriate level from a wide selection.
