Students - How to Use Accelerated Reader

Your students can log in to Accelerated Reader in a browser on a computer or tablet. Even though students go to the same web address that teachers and administrators go to, students can only access the section of the program that allows them to take quizzes and perform other student tasks. Students cannot access the information that's in the section of the program that teachers and administrators use.

Students who log in to Accelerated Reader can take quizzes, view their progress (including goals and points), and view information about the quizzes they've taken. They can also see ideas for books or articles to read based on their own reading, their Zone of Proximal Development, their interest level, and reading by their peers. Books that are in your library are marked with the (in school library) icon if you have imported MARC record information.

In Renaissance Home Connect, if available, students can also view their overall progress toward goals, their certifications, the quizzes they have taken (including their score and quiz details), and the words they have learned.
