Honors Reader

There are several reader certification goals that you can set for your students. Each one has its own requirements that the students must meet to be certified at that level.

Honors Reader is a special type of reader certification. To earn Honors Reader, the student must:

  • Independently read books from a special list of challenging literature (teachers and librarians create the list of books students choose from).
  • Accumulate 100 points from the books that were read.

You cannot set Honors Reader as a certification goal in the software, nor can Accelerated Reader monitor progress toward it. The teacher must manually keep track of each student's progress. You can use the TOPS Report or the Student Record Report to help you monitor student progress toward Honors Reader.

Certification goals are different from other Reading Practice goals.
