Accelerated Reader (AR) is software for K-12 schools for monitoring the practice of reading. It was created by Renaissance Learning, Inc. There are two versions: a desktop version and a web-based version in Renaissance Place, the company’s online portal.

Accelerated Reader was designed to facilitate student reading growth through practice in an educational setting by:

  • Assessment of a student’s reading level through the STAR (Standardized Test for the Assessment of Reading) test
  • A system of leveling trade books using the ATOS reading formula which includes average sentence length, average word length, vocabulary grade level, and number of words in the book
  • Assessing comprehension by means of a computer-based quiz that tests general knowledge in a multiple choice format of 3-20 questions
  • Providing a range of reports for parents and teachers that detail student progress indeed.
