How Does the Accelerated Reader (AR) program work?

(1)    Students read books within their ZPD, or Zone of Proximal Development (reading range).  ZPD is determined by students taking the STAR Reading test - at the beginning of the school year, at mid-year, and at the end of the school year.
NOTE: Most books in Canterbury Elementary's Library are AR "testing" books!


  Students take quizzes on books that are in their ZPD in order to earn points and meet their 6-weeks AR goals.


  In order to meet their 6-weeks AR goal, students must:
(a)    maintain a 90% average on quizzes (no rounding up!)
(b)    earn all points as determined by their ZPD
(c)    maintain average book level by quizzing on books within their ZPD


  Parents, through Renaissance HomeConnect, are able to receive instant feedback on the student's reading progress. 
NOTE: Username and password are the same as those the student uses to login at school.
