Accelerated Reader

At its heart, AR is simple. Students read a book, take an AR Quiz, and get immediate feedback. Kids get excited and motivated when they see their progress. And teachers can easily monitor and manage students' independent reading practice.  With more than 160,000 AR Quizzes—nearly half of which are non-fiction—students never run out of books to explore. Quizzes can be taken on computers, laptops, and tablets 7 inches or larger. There are five types of quizzes. Go ahead: take a Sample Quiz.
