About Accelerated Reader

Aargh Matey!!! Read a Good Book!!
 
Accelerated Reader is a computer based program in which students select and read certain books which are labeled AR, then take computerized tests, which test the student's comprehension of the book read. Students earn points and prizes, based on the length and reading level of the book read. AR is designed to encourage students to become excited about reading and to create better readers. If a child earns 25 or more points and maintains an 80% during the year, he or she is invited to our end-of-year activity, which is Splash Blast!
 
THE MORE YOU READ, THE BETTER READER YOU BECOME!
