Getting Started with Accelerated Reader 360 Instructional Reading

In Accelerated Reader 360 Instructional Reading, students can discover articles that interest them, read the articles, and then complete a skills practice assignment and take a quiz.

You can also assign article assignments to your class or group. When you open Accelerated Reader 360 Instructional Reading, the starting page gives you three ways to assign work to your classes or groups:

You can also create groups within a class by selecting Manage Groups on the Select Skills or Topics to Practice page. Accelerated Reader 360 will also recognize groups that you've created in Reading Dashboards or Star Custom (for reading assignments).

Students can then log in and complete the assignments you've given them. If the article requires highlighting and tagging, they select the text to highlight and choose the tag to apply. They may also be asked to answer questions and take a quiz.

Whether students discover articles on their own or complete the assignments you give them, after students start completing work, you can view and score their responses to skills practice assignments (highlighting and tagging and/or answers to questions) and view their quiz results.

You can also see data on students' Instructional Reading activity in the Reading Dashboards. You will find these in the Reading Dashboard link under Dashboards and Reporting on your Home page.

Students can also view their results.
