How does it work?
The quizzes featured on this website are short samples from the full quizzes available to students using Accelerated Reader. While these ‘mini’ quizzes reveal a student’s score, the full programme provides a wealth of data about students’ progress with reading. Students enjoy taking the quizzes and respond positively as they see their reading skills improve. Independent research from the National Literacy Trust has found that “children and young people who use AR tend to enjoy reading more, do it more often and think more positively about reading.”
Recently, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has published research into Accelerated Reader finding that students using the programme made 3 months’ additional progress in the space of 22 weeks. The EFF commented on the “particularly positive effects, especially for low-income pupils… we are confident that the results of today’s reports will go some way in helping teachers to close their attainment gap.”
An interactive dashboard and a comprehensive set of reports give teachers the information they need to know about how well students are progressing with reading, personalising their reading practice and informing intervention strategies.
