How AR Works

All students, grades K-6, have taken the STAR reading assessment online to determine his/her ZPD (Zone of Proximal Development) range. The ZPD defines the readability range from which students should be selecting books in order to achieve optimal growth in reading skills without experiencing frustration. 

Students are encouraged to read books from their AR level. Students have the opportunity to take the AR quizzes at school. Tests can only be taken at school, during school hours. Quizzes are taken without the book, they should be able to answer comprehension questions on the test/quiz.

If the book does not have a leveled color dot from our school library, that means the book does not have an AR quiz. Therefore, the child will not earn any points for reading that book, since there is no quiz for that book. But of course, students can still read it! ☺

Your child can find out if a book that they are reading (home library book, public library, etc.) is an AR book, by logging onto www.arbookfind.com and searching for their book. If the book is not in the AR system, then it does not have a quiz, yet. Quizzes are continuously being created.
