How Do You Take an Accelerated Reader Practice Quiz?

Students can take an Accelerated Reader practice quiz by visiting the Renaissance Learning website,, and navigating to the sample quiz page. Renaissance Learning is an online resource that produces diagnostic quizzes in reading and math for students.

The Renaissance Learning website hosts several Accelerated Reader practice quizzes. The practice quizzes are designed to simulate the actual reading assessments students take. The assessments provide a diagnostic of how well students comprehend a book at a certain reading level.

Accelerated Reader practice quizzes and assessments are available on any computer or laptop connected to the Internet as well as tablets at least as large as 7 inches. The available practice quizzes are suitable for students reading at the elementary, middle school or high school level, depending on the book title chosen. For example, “Honey for Baby Bear” is a title appropriate for elementary school children, while “Of Mice and Men” is for readers at a high school level.

The site also offers three-question practice quizzes that are suitable for early readers. The quizzes offer a recorded voice option that reads the questions and answers.

Renaissance Learning offers tests for an extensive list of book titles covering both fiction and non-fiction. In preparation for taking the Accelerated Reader quizzes, students read the target titles closely, learning to build on their reading skills. Access to the actual reading quizzes necessitates a user name and password issued by the school, which has to purchase licensing rights.
