Progress monitoring with myON® Reader

myON Progress monitoring

Real-time data, not just quiz scores!

Measure Reading with Reading

myON provides answers to commonly-asked questions about student reading engagement that offer insights into whether students are on the path to reading proficiency and growth.

  • Are students reading?
  • When are they reading?
  • What are they reading?
  • What are their special reading interests and preferences?
  • How much time are they spending reading?

Data such as the number of books browsed and read, the types of books students are reading, the number of words and pages read, time spent reading and whether reading occurs during out of school hours, is seamlessly captured within the myON environment while students are reading.

Real time growth measurement

Embedded Lexile,® assessments and optional end-of-book quizzes within the myON environment enable real-time measurement of student growth. Results are transparently available to students, educators, and administrators.


Lexile® Placement Exam


When students log into myON Reader for the first time, they are prompted to take an age-appropriate, adaptive Lexile® Placement Exam designed to quickly and accurately assess their current Lexile level. Results of this assessment are used to match students with books that are 100 Lexiles below and 50 Lexiles above their reading level in order to target the maximum reading growth.

Lexile® Benchmark Assessments


Once students begin reading with myON Reader, Lexile® Benchmark Assessments are automatically generated by the system. Additionally, educators can manually schedule a Lexile® assessment whenever needed. Reports based upon Lexile® Assessments provide actionable data for educators about whether students are reading books within their “just right” range (100 Lexiles below and 50 Lexiles above their current reading level), how frequently they are taking benchmark exams to monitor their growth, and whether they are on target to meet growth goals established by their teachers.

Optional End-of-Book Quizzes


Comprehension quizzes can be enabled when students finish reading a book. Five-question quizzes measure understanding of the main idea, recall of supporting details, vocabulary, interpretation, and inference. Students receive immediate feedback once they have completed the quiz. If a student re-reads a book, a set of new questions will populate within the quiz. Reports provide overall scores as well as breakout information on each question type to help educators identify which skills students may need to develop further.

ENGAGE: Motivation starts with choice
It’s a continuous circle - if kids are motivated to read, they spend more time reading, become more engaged in reading and are motivated to read more. Motivation is critical, and it all starts with choice. Print or digital, from the school library or anywhere else, the latest bestseller or a perennial classic, with nearly 200,000 quizzes in the Accelerated Reader 360 database, choice is nearly limitless!
