ACCELERATED READER (AR)Daily reading practice is a key element in developing readers. The Accelerated Reader program is a computerized tool that is designed to test basic comprehension and to encourage daily reading practice. Teachers use this tool to help them identify a child's reading range (STAR test), set individual reading goals, track progress, and provide motivational rewards for reaching goals. Parents can help their child be successful by reading to and with them on a daily basis. Renaissance Home Connect is a component of the program that provides parents with a snapshot of their child’s progress using Accelerated Reader. This includes progress towards reading goals, average book level, average percent correct on quizzes, and results on each quiz taken.
