We, at American Elementary School, are very excited to be piloting this new program from Renaissance Place.
“Accelerated Reader Enterprise”
With this program, students will have access to over 162,000 quizzes on a large variety of books. If your child has a favorite book in your home library, receive a book as a present, purchase a book from a book store, book fair, or use the public library, they will be able check and see if it’s an Accelerated Reader book. All you need to do is check *ARBookFinder.
*(students will still need to keep the book level within their ZPD range).
How many Accelerated Reader quizzes are there?
There are over1626,000 AR quizzes available. However, schools may not have all quizzes. If a school has purchased
Accelerated Reader Enterprise, it will have access to all quizzes
What kinds of quizzes are there?
Reading Practice Quizzes are the most common type of assessment in AR. The purpose of these quizzes is to
determine whether your child has read a book, to measure literal comprehension of the book, and to provide immediate
feedback. Each Reading Practice Quiz consists of 5, 10, or 20 multiple-choice questions depending on book level
How will I know if a book has an AR quiz?
Visit the AR BookFinder™ at www.arbookfind.com to conduct a search of all available books with AR quizzes
How can I help my child find books that are interesting to him?
Visit www.arbookfind.com and click on Advanced Search. By conducting an advanced search, you can generate book lists that contain titles based on the criteria you enter such as book level, topic, interest level, fiction/nonfiction, etc.
Is it OK for my child to read outside of his/her reading level?
Just because a child can read the words in a book doesn’t mean the content is appropriate. The interest level of the material must be considered. Interest level is based on content—a book’s themes and ideas—and indicates for which age group a book is appropriate. The chart below shows which grades fall into each interest level.
Interest Level Grade
MG+--Middle Grade Plus
6 and up
These are recommendations only. It is the responsibility of teachers, librarians, and parents to use their best judgment when guiding children to appropriate books.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. DeVoy or talk to your student’s teacher.
