Editing the Classroom Quiz Setup Preference

You can use the Classroom Quiz Setup Preference to block students from taking Reading Practice, Vocabulary Practice, Literacy Skills, or Other Reading Quizzes. Changes that you make to this preference apply only to the class that you chose to work with. Note: If you block quiz-taking using this preference, the quiz monitor cannot override the block even if you've enabled the Monitor Override Preference.

The Quiz Setup Preference also lets you set up restrictions for the class based on book level and interest level. Students will only be able to find and take quizzes on books in the book level range that you specify or with the interest levels that you specify.

Who can do this with standard capabilities?

District Administrators, School Administrators, Teachers

If you copied classes from the previous school year, this classroom preference setting will also carry over from the previous school year.

  1. On the Home page, if you see Accelerated Reader, click it, then click Preferences.

    If you have the Accelerated Reader 360 Suite, select Independent Reading, then Preferences.

  2. Click Quiz Setup in the Classroom Preferences section on the Preferences page.
  3. If necessary, choose a school and class from the drop-down lists on the View Quiz Setup Preferences page. 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.
  4. Click Edit Quiz Setup.
  5. The Edit Quiz Setup Preferences page shows you which types of quizzes the students in the class will be allowed to take.
  6. To change the settings, check the box by every quiz type you want the students in this class to be allowed to take. Note: If you leave a box blank (blocking quizzing on that type of quiz), the quiz monitor cannot override the block even if you've enabled the Monitor Override Preference.

  7. In the Books section of the preference, if you want to restrict students in the class based on book level and interest level, do the following:
    • Enter the lower and upper end of the range of book levels (or Lexile┬« Measures) that you want to allow students in the class to take quizzes for. If you enter the full range (0.0 to 20.0 for ATOS or BR to 1800 for Lexile┬« Measures), students can take a quiz for any available title.
    • Use the drop-down list to choose the interest levels for books that students in the class are allowed to take quizzes for. LG (Lower Grades) is for content that is most appropriate for grades K-3. MG (Middle Grades) means grades 4-8, while MG+ means grades 6 and up (often called Young Adult). UG (Upper Grades) means the content is most appropriate for grades 9-12.
    • Book level and interest level restrictions set in this preference cannot be overridden by the quiz monitor because the student cannot find quizzes with book levels or interest levels that you've chosen not to allow.

    You can also restrict book levels and interest levels for individual students using the Book Levels preference and Interest Levels preference under the Individual Student Preferences. Those restrictions can be overridden by the monitor password because students are allowed to find the books; they can take the quizzes if the quiz monitor enters the password.

    If there are differences between the class and student restrictions, the more limited restrictions are used.

  8. Click Save when you're finished.
