About Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader is a powerful tool for monitoring and managing independent reading practice, motivating your children to read for pleasure.

Appropriate Challenge

Pupils 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.

Recent studies indicate that when students spend 25 minutes a day reading suitably challenging books which they successfully comprehend (demonstrated by achieving 90% or more on the reading practice quiz), then they will achieve optimal reading age growth.

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.

When students finish a book, they should quiz on that book as soon as possible – ideally within 24 hours to ensure the best score.


Star Tests

Students are Star Tested at least three times a year.

In a star test, students answer approximately 30 multiple choice reading questions based on a number of passages.

Each test is tailored to individual students.

Each question answered correctly moves students onto a more difficult question.

When questions are answered wrongly, the next question is lowered in difficulty.

The result provides a range of information about a child’s reading age, range of development and a National Curriculum Level indicator.
