Accelerated Reader is a computerized reading management system used for motivating children to read and for tracking achievement. Students select and read books, then take computerized tests to measure their understanding. Students earn points based on the length of the book and on their test scores. The program keeps track of all the tests taken and points earned for each participation student.
The AR Bookfinder allows you to search for book titles based on authors, topics, or titles of books. If you are at the public library or a bookstore, or if you want to learn the AR levels of the books in your home collection, this is the tool to use!
