Taking Accelerated Reader Quizzes

Accelerated Reader helps create a culture of reading by motivating, monitoring, and managing students’ independent reading practice.

Students independently read books and then take short quizzes to show how well they understand the book.

There are more than 150,000 books that have AR quizzes. How do I know if my book has a quiz?
