Research inspires the best reading practice available.


Accelerated Reader 360 is one of the most heavily researched programs in the world, with one of the largest databases of K–12 student reading information. This invaluable insight tells us what works for students and what doesn’t, so teachers can confidently focus on exactly what accelerates growth.


"Accelerated Reader 360 is very interactive, with kids attacking the text and talking about what they’re reading, which goes hand in hand with comprehension. It’s not just learning in a bubble through a textbook. It’s authentic metacognition."
