Children in almost 4,000 schools across the UK use Accelerated Reader.

At its heart, Accelerated Reader is simple.

A pupil reads a book, takes an online quiz, and gets immediate feedback. Children respond to regular feedback and are motivated to make progress with their reading skills.

Choice and motivation for young readers

Because pupils receive regular feedback from AR, teachers and librarians are given many opportunities to praise pupils for their successes and to discuss with them what they have been reading.

Over 27,000 reading practice quizzes are available on books from over 300 publishers and imprints. Independent of any publishing interests and suitable for children of any age, AR ensures that there are plenty of books to interest every reader available on the programme.

Take a sample quiz

There are four different types of Accelerated Reader quiz: Reading Practice, Recorded Voice, Vocabulary Practice, and Literacy Skills.

“Children and young people who use AR tend to enjoy reading more, do it more often and think more positively about reading than their peers who do not use AR. They are also more likely to see a link between reading and their success.”
