See how we create Reading Practice Quizzes for Accelerated Reader—and meet four of our AR quiz writers.


Student-driven. Teacher-guided.

Accelerated Reader puts students in the driver’s seat. You guide students, while engaging quizzes and activities help hone students’ reading skills with authentic practice—encouraging growth.


Personalized goals help students stay focused on the factors that matter most for reading growth—and help you monitor their progress and provide feedback to keep learners on track.


Individual reading recommendations use students’ interests and reading levels to suggest “just-right” titles—or students can self-select from over 200,000 choices!


“Just reading” transforms into high-quality reading practice that fuels growth: Reading quizzes monitor comprehension, while literacy skills and vocabulary quizzes extend student learning and build skills mastery.


Detailed reports provide insights into students’ progress. Paired with Renaissance Star Reading®, track students’ mastery of focus skills aligned to state-specific learning standards.

Accelerated Reader for administrators, teachers, and families

Create a culture of reading

From recognizing students’ achievements to students discovering new interests, Accelerated Reader helps create a culture of reading through choice.

Students who read more perform better in all their academic coursework. Help all your teachers make up for lost instructional time by helping students learn to love reading. This isn’t high dosage tutoring, but its impact may be even greater.
