Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader is a program that monitors and manages independent reading practice while promoting reading for pleasure.

There is a huge emphasis on reading in all curriculum areas and we have implemented this programme to support our students in Year 7, 8 and 9.

The programme promotes reading for pleasure and it enables students of all abilities to read books, take an AR quiz and get immediate feedback. Students are motivated when they see their progress and teachers can easily monitor and manage students’ independent reading practice

With over 25000 books available for AR, every student can select books of an appropriate difficulty that also interests them. Students take fun motivational quizzes to test their comprehension of the books that they have read, aiming for benchmarks and targets set by their teachers.

Students regularly take quizzes on the books they have to read. To recognise and reward this achievement they receive prizes and certificates.
