Accelerated Reader Preferences
You can use the Accelerated Reader preferences to control how the software works for your school, class, or individual students. School preferences are set for each school. Classroom preferences are set for each class. Individual student preferences allow you to choose a setting for each student.
Some preferences are available at both the school and the classroom level. These preferences can be changed at the classroom level only if permission is granted using the school-level preference.
Who can do this with standard capabilities?
District Administrators, School Administrators, Teachers
District administrators and school administrators can change the School, Classroom, and individual student preferences. Teachers can view the School preference settings and can change the Classroom preference settings and individual student preferences for their class. District staff and school staff can only view the School preference settings. However, the availability of these options will depend on the capabilities you've been granted and whether you are assigned to any Accelerated Reader classes.
For more information about each Accelerated Reader preference, click any of the preference names listed below. To go to the Preferences page, on the Home page, click Accelerated Reader (or Independent Reading if you have AR 360); then, select Preferences.
