In support to the reading program of our school, the library is helping teachers and administrators promote reading through Accelerated Reader to improve the students’ reading comprehension skills.
Accelerated Reader is a computer program that helps teachers and librarians manage and monitor students’ independent reading practice. A student picks a book based on his/her reading level and reads it at his/her own pace. When finished, student takes a short quiz on the computer. Passing the quiz is an indication that a student understood what was read. The program keeps track of all the tests taken and points earned for each participating student. The multiple choice tests are made up of 5, 10, or 20 comprehension and recall questions. After completing the test, the student is shown how many questions were answered correctly. The program shows the answers for the questions missed and awards reading points to the student’s record.
Teachers and librarians help students choose books at an appropriate readability level that are challenging without being frustrating, ensuring that students can pass the quiz and experience success.
