Accelerated Reader Books Question and Answer. . .
Accelerated Reader is a popular reading management program that many schools use to help students read. Students take a brief fifteen-minute exam to discover what reading level they are comfortable with. After the reading exam a student will choose a book that reflects their reading level. Once the student has finished reading the book they take a brief multiple-choice quiz (10 to 20 questions) on the book. If the student passes the quiz, they get a certain number of points for the book they have read (points are earned according to difficulty and length of the book read). Usually a teacher will determine how many points a student must earn over the course of a term. The more a student reads, the more points they earn!
