Accelerated Reader: A Guide for Parents

In Tallanstown N.S. all students from 2nd to 6th class take part in the Accelerated Reader

programme, which is designed to do the following things:

  • Find books that are the right ability for your child.

  • Encourage your child to read more.

  • Improve your child’s reading ability.

What is Accelerated Reader?

In short, Accelerated Reader is a computer program that helps teachers manage and monitor children’s

independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his/her own level and reads it at his/her own

pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer. Accelerated Reader gives children and teachers, feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher then uses to help your child set goals and direct ongoing reading practice.
