What is AR (Accelerated Reader)?

Accelerated Reader is a guided reading intervention used to supplement regular reading instruction in K–12 classrooms. Its aim is to improve students’ reading skills through reading practice and quizzes on the books students read.  Students read (or are read to) a book and then take a computerized quiz based on the book’s content and vocabulary.
