PARENTS!!! Have you ever heard of Accelerated Reader? If you have then you probably already know how important this program is to our English department. If you have never heard of Accelerated Reader, then it is important that you learn!
In a nutshell... Accelerated Reader is a computer software program that quizzes students on books they have read. The software program records each quiz taken and tracks students progress. More importantly, quizzes provide assessment information to help inspire reading, monitor progress, and target instruction to accelerate reading growth. End results provide easy-to-read reports on the reading level and comprehension skills of each student to guide instruction and help students select more reading materials.
