Accelerated Reader

Information for parents

Accelerated reader is a system used by the school to encourage the development of reading skills. Elements for reading success using Accelerated Reader

1. Determine reading level - Children take a short reading test, the result if which determines the current reading ability and suggests a range of book levels. This will provide children with books that will keep them challenged without causing frustration.

2. Book selection - Once the children know their reading range, they are able to choose books within the range that interest them from the books available in our library.

3. Taking the AR quiz - Once children have read their book and are fully comfortable with the content, they are able to take online comprehension quiz or vocabulary test. Once the quiz has been completed the children receive instant feedback on how they have done, including the opportunity to review inaccurate answers. To pass a test children need to achieve 60% accuracy?

4. Target setting - Each child is set a target to aim for. As these are achieved they receive online awards as well as physical certificates to show their progress.

Children's reading achievements are celebrated within the school in many ways, including classroom displays to track and show progress, to the issuing of Ready Reader certificates during weekly celebration assemblies.
