Welcome, Accelerated Reader (AR) is an online program utilized to increase your child's independent reading comprehension.
Starting August 1, your child will be taking a STAR diagnostic test which will determine his/her Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD). The ZPD represents a level that is neither too difficult nor too easy and it is the point at which optimal comprehension occurs.
Once a student's ZPD is determined, he/she will read book within his/her reading range. when a student completes a book, he/she will take an AR test that will measure his/her comprehension of the book. Each AR book is assigned a point value. If the student passes the AR test, he/she will earn the amount of points assigned to that book based on the score of the test.
Reading is a skill that needs practice. The best way for students to develop their reading skills is by spending time reading every single day. Thank you very much, MMS Library
