How it works

How does Accelerated Reader work?

1. Choose

Encourage students to find something to read! Accelerated Reader has quizzes on more than 200,000 books, ensuring students never run out of choices.

2. Read

This is the best part! Students get to read a book of their choosing. Students can read in class, at home, or out and about in the community.

4. Analyze

You gain instant insight into students’ quiz results. Use that data to set goals, monitor students’ continued progress, and personalize lesson plans.

3. Quiz

Once they finish a book, students take a short quiz on what they’ve read. Each quiz is written to ensure students have read the entire book.
