Accelerated Reader Points
In Accelerated Reader, points are a measure of the amount of reading practice a student is getting. Every Reading Practice Quiz has a point value assigned to it based on the book level and the word count of the book (the book's difficulty and length). Students earn points by passing Reading Practice Quizzes. The points that a student earns on a quiz are based on the total point value of the quiz and the score the student received on it.
In Accelerated Reader, teachers can set goals for the number of points that each student should earn during a marking period. These goals are reflected in the Reading Dashboard views if you choose to view data for marking periods that include goals.
