Students can read books and take Accelerated Reader Quizzes at home.
Accelerated Reader also has nonfiction high-interest articles for students to
read, and quizzes they can take after reading articles. Teachers will provide
login instructions if students don’t already have them.

their individualized Accelerated Reader goals. These goals are at their just
right level of challenge and will help motivate them. Achieving their goals
will help ensure students are experiencing reading growth.
