Accelerated Reader

Great news! During this time of virtual learning, students will now be allowed to take AR quizzes from home! If they are using a school-owned Google Chromebook, they already have a link they can use. If not, please have students use the link below to access AR. They should already know their username and password. Please be sure students have read the book first (multiple times for lower grades) and have them take the quiz without having the book in front of them for reference. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you have other questions about AR. Students will not be able to take STAR assessments from home at this time.

Take an Accelerated Reader Quiz (using Google Chrome)

AR Book Finder


AR is a computer program that helps teachers manage and monitor children's independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his own level and reads it at his own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer. (Passing the quiz is an indication that your child understood what was read.) AR gives both children and teachers feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher then uses to help your child set goals and direct ongoing reading practice.

Studies show that students perform better when parents are actively involved in the learning process. Log on to Renaissance Home Connect to access real-time information on your student’s progress, sign up to receive emails about quiz activity, stay up to date, and keep your child motivated.  

For Accelerated Reader, parents can: 

  • View progress towards your student’s independent reading practice goals and other helpful metrics.
  • See a summary of all of your student's activities for both book and nonfiction articles.
  • Login using your student's AR username and password.
