Points Management

Students earn points as they pass Reading Practice Quizzes; the points earned for each quiz are based on the student's score. You do not need to manually track earned points; the program automatically awards points earned.

If you award points for other reasons and if your students use or "spend" their points in classroom activities, you can use Points Management to record the extra points awarded and the points your students have used. Note: Points awarded do not count toward Reading Practice points goals; only points earned from quizzes count toward the goals.

Points Management shows you how many points your students have earned, how many have been awarded outside of Accelerated Reader, how many have been used by your students, and the points available to each student (points earned + points awarded - points used = points available). Within this section of the program, you can add, edit, and delete records of points that have been used or awarded.

Follow these steps to go to Points Management for a class:

  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.
  2. On the Record Books and Goals page, use the drop-down lists to select your school or class or both, if necessary.
  3. Click Points Management in the list of Other Activities.
