Accelerated Reader (AR) is a web-based program that tracks students’ independent reading progress. This is a major component of King’s language arts program as students are expected to read for 30 minutes a night at home in addition to the reading at school. In the beginning of the year, students take a diagnostic test and are then assigned a points-based reading goal for the semester. When students complete books, they take quizzes in the AR system. Parents can log in to check their student’s reading progress, help student select appropriate books, and see progress towards their student’s individual points goal for the quarter.
