The Accelerated Reader (AR) Program provides teachers and children a fun and exciting way to promote reading at home and in the classroom.
As a school we continue to be excited about our Intranet AR program through Renaissance Learning and are confident that it will continue to support our students’ success. CRES has a subscription to all Renaissance AR Quizzes that are available. That is over 100,000 quizzes!
The students read books from their classroom, public or school library. After they have completed a book they take a comprehension test on the computer. Based on their percentage of correct answers they will be awarded a designated number of points for each test completed. These points are then accrued throughout the year for various incentives and report card assessment. Accelerated Reader (AR) software is installed in the classrooms and computer lab allowing students to take in-class quizzes on books they have read for points. Each book has a designated reading level as well as point value.
