Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader is a computer program that helps our teachers to manage and monitor students' independent reading.

Students are encouraged choose books that are suitable for their reading level, and read at their own pace. When they finish they book, they take a short online quiz. The quiz measures how much of what they read was understood.

Accelerated Reader gives both students and teachers feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher then uses to help the student set targets and direct ongoing reading practice.

Parent's Guide to Accelerated Reader

Students can log on to Accelerated Reader using the link below, their log in details will be the same as MyOn - their username and ABC as the password.
