Renaissance Accelerated Reader

Renaissance Accelerated Reader is a guided reading intervention used to supplement regular reading instruction in K through 8 classrooms.  Its aim is to improve students' reading skills through reading practice and quizzes on the books students read. The Accelerated Reader program calls for students to select and read a book and then take a computerized quiz based on the book's content and vocabulary. The computer software then provides teachers with information on the students' performance on the quiz, which allows teachers to monitor student progress and identify students who may need more reading assistance.
Based on each student’s independent reading level, AR helps teachers set personalized goals for each student, and guide students to books difficult enough to keep them challenged, engaged and helps sharpen students' reading skills. 
With AR, teachers can:
  • Motivate students for learning. 
  • Receive reliable, objective information.
  • Prepare students for college and career. 
  • Keep all students challenged.
