The Accelerated Reader (AR) is a computerized progress-monitoring assessment and personalized practice tool that provides reliable and valid feedback on comprehension of books and other materials that students have read. For students, this feedback is motivational. For teachers, this assessment information is used to carefully monitor and guide each student’s independent reading practice.
