Accelerated Reader (AR) is a proven, level-based program which helps students build reading mastery at their own individual level by reading books that excite and motivate them. The program works by students reading a book, taking a quick computerized multiple-choice quiz and then receiving rewards for passing the test (85% correct) and for continuing to read. Please contact your child's teacher for more specific information regarding his or her AR goal, reading level, etc.
Home Connect is web-based interface that allows you to see your child's progress in Accelerated Reader. Click the Home Connect icon and enter your child's COES student ID and password. Students may not tak AR tests at home using this website; it is only for you to monitor progress. Contact your child's teacher if you need log-in information.
To determine if a book has an AR quiz written for it, or to check its AR information--reading level, point total, etc., go to arbookfind.com. If a book does not show up in the database, it most likely does not have a quiz written for it. If the book is newly published, keep checking to determine if and when a quiz becomes available.
