How can I request a book to be quizzed?
By Cecelia Powell, Managing Editor
We are often asked when a particular book will have a quiz made available for Accelerated Reader. Sometimes these are new publications, and the book is currently in our editing process. Other times, they are slightly older books that we haven’t yet come across. One way or the other, if we know that a book is highly sought-after in schools using AR we will make every effort to produce a quiz for that book.
We have a simple online form that you can fill out to suggest a book for quizzing. This links to a database system that we use to prioritise the quizzes we produce. We look at each book on a case-by-case basis, but as a general rule we will prioritise books with more requests more highly than those with fewer requests. Suggesting a book does not guarantee that we will produce a quiz on it, but will help to inform our priorities – recommendations are a significant and increasingly important measure for prioritising quizzes.
Suggesting a quiz is also the best way for you to be kept informed about our progress with a quiz. When you suggest a book to be quizzed, you will receive a notification telling you if the book has been deemed non-quizzable, or if a quiz is already in production. When the quiz is approved and made available to schools, you will receive a follow-up notification to alert you to the new quiz.
Many of the new quizzes we draw attention to on the Books and Quizzes blog are among the most highly requested titles, so you can keep abreast of the titles in most demand at other schools by visiting this site regularly.
