Full Answer

The Accelerated Reader program is a proprietary learning tool that is used to assess a student's reading level and pair that student with specific books and other reading materials that matches the level displayed on the assessment quiz. There are also components of the program, including quizzes, that are designed to determine whether students have actually completed reading assignments. The free quizzes available on the Renaissance Learning website represent a small part of the total available program and may not be a viable alternative to actually going through the full program. Critics of the Accelerated Reader program have noted that the program seems largely designed to focus on recall for the final assessment quizzes.
