RENAISSANCE ACCELERATED READER

 

All students in Year 7 and Year 8  participate in the Renaissance Accelerated Reader program.  AR is a computer program that helps us to manage and monitor student’s independent reading practice.  Students take a Star Reading test which determines their reading range. Students then pick a book at their own level and read it at their own pace. When finished, they take a short quiz on the computer. Passing the quiz is an indication that they understood what was read.  AR gives students, teachers, and librarians feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher then uses to help students set goals and direct ongoing reading practice. The successful completion of book quizzes means more word count and AR Points for the students.
