Set Current Book Level

Who can do this with standard capabilities?

District Administrators, School Administrators

Choose which book level types to see and use throughout Accelerated Reader (ATOS or Lexile® Measure) by following the steps below.

When you change the book level in this preference, you are also changing it for Star Reading. If the book level is changed in the Star Reading preferences, that also affects Accelerated Reader. For details, see More Information on Lexile® Measure Preferences in AR and Star Reading.

  1. On the Home page, click Accelerated Reader (or Independent Reading if you have Accelerated Reader 360), then Manage Books and Quizzes.
  2. Choose the school you want to work with from the School drop-down list.
  3. Click Book Level Settings under Actions on the left side of the Manage Books and Quizzes page. Note that the Book Level Settings page shows you what level is currently being used in the program.
  4. Click Set Current Book Level on the Book Level Settings page to set the level for the selected school.
  5. Click the book level type option you want: ATOS (scale 0.1-20.0) or Lexile® Measure; then click Save. You will return to the Book Level Settings page that will list the book level you set. You may want to update student records in the school year to reflect the current book level you just set.
