Accelerated Reader (AR)

The Accelerated Reading Program, more popularly known as AR, is a computer-based reading management system that includes a database of thousands of books ranging in reading levels from one to twelve. Students check out books on their reading level and take a test consisting of multiple choice questions with five or ten questions. Second & third grade students meet their AR goal when they meet their point goal and have an 85% average or higher. A point goal chart is listed below.

INFORMATION ABOUT HOMECONNECT

To monitor your child's progress in AR at home use the HomeConnect link. To log on to HomeConnect you will need your child's edutest number or ID number. All Bossier Parish students are assigned a six digit edutest number, also referred to as an ID number. This number does not change from year to year as long as your child stays in Bossier Parish. The password is "P" followed by your child's edutest number/ID number.

What is your goal point?

This chart can help you figure out about how many books you need to read to reach your AR point goal. Most of the books at Bellaire have 5 questions which equals half a point.

Happy Reading!!!
