A child, parent or teacher can access an accelerated reading score by viewing the reading record within the accelerated reading program at the school or within an online portal hosted by the school, according to Plew Elementary School. The total number of points earned is documented on the reading log.
The reading log within the application or online program details scores and the number of points earned for each quiz taken, according to Plew Elementary School. The reading program tracks a student's reading comprehension through quizzes designed to measure their improvement after reading selected books in line with each student's reading level. The accelerated reading program is designed to advance student reading levels and encourage reading throughout the year.
A child's reading level is determined by a Star Reading test administered by instructors or teachers at the beginning of the year, according to Plew Elementary School. The diagnostic test determines the child's reading level and recommends books designed to improve the student's comprehension, vocabulary and overall literacy rate. Once a student completes a book, a reading practice quiz is administered to evaluate the student's comprehension of the material read. The child can advance to higher reading levels by re-taking the Star Reading test, which is typically administered three times during the school year.
