Accelerated Reader is a widely used computer program to help students and teachers gauge the level at which children can read independently. Children choose their own book, from the vast selection available from Renaissance, and take a quiz on the computer to show that they have correctly understood the contents of the book. The results of the quiz allow the teacher to guide the child towards books which, while stretching their ability, will also be comfortably within their reach and of interest so they keep reading.
Children that are forced to read when they have no interest in the material being read quickly lose enthusiasm for reading. One of the key features of Accelerated Reader titles is that children are guided to books that they will find challenging by their ZPD level but without constricting them to a particular topic, genre or set of characters.
When a book is finished, your child can log onto the Accelerated Reader website and take a short quiz about the book. Depending on the complexity of the book and the age of the child 5, 10 or 20 multiple choice questions reposed to determine the degree to which the child understood the book. Younger children can have books read to them and answer questions, with help reading them perhaps, although the caregiver should avoid answering the question for the child. The quizzes aren't designed to test memory – it's perfectly fine to check an answer in the book before submitting a response.
