Students have to take Accelerated Reader, or AR, tests after reading an Accelerated Reader book. Schools use the Accelerated Reader program to supplement kindergarten through 12th-grade reading instruction. The program includes books and quizzes that students take to assess reading comprehension.
Students can choose the books they wish to read from a massive list of Accelerated Reader books. A tool is available at ARBookFind.com that allows students and parents to search for books to read. They can sort the books by subject, interest level and readability level. The Accelerated Reader program divides interest levels into kindergarten through third grade, fourth through eighth grade, sixth grade and up, and ninth through 12th grade.
