    Make sure that School Year is the selected timeframe in the third link.

  5. Select the AR 360 Independent Practice plan, which includes the Accelerated Reader quizzes that the students have taken.
  6. After you click the plan, you will see a list of the quizzes that students have taken. There are two ways to get to the quiz record that you want to edit:

    • Select the name of the quiz. You will see a list of the students who have taken the quiz and their scores.
  7. If you are viewing the student's work, select Complete for the score that you want to change. Then, select Rescore.
