Approving Independent Reader Status

When you set certification goals for your students (and enable the TWI Monitoring Preference), Accelerated Reader automatically monitors student progress toward the goals and awards reader certifications when students meet the requirements. When a student achieves Independent Reader status, the teacher needs to approve it. Follow the steps below.

Who can do this with standard capabilities?

District Administrators, School Administrators, Teachers

  1. On the Home page, if you see Accelerated Reader, click it, then click Record Books and Goals.

    If you have the Accelerated Reader 360 Suite, select Independent Reading, then Record Books and Goals.

    If necessary, choose the school and class from the drop-down lists. Choose My Classes instead of a school if you want only the Accelerated Reader RP classes you are assigned to as a teacher to be in the class list, regardless of the school.

  2. Click Reading Practice Certifications in the list of Class Record Books.
  3. The Status column on the View Reading Practice Certification Record Book page shows you whether each student's certification is in progress, has been achieved, or needs approval, and whether a new goal is needed.
  4. Click Approve for the student who needs his or her Independent Reader status approved.
