Accelerated Reader Brochure for Evansdale Elementary
4. The Accelerated Reader tests can be accessed in the Computer Lab, Media Center, and the student's classroom. Students may test before and after school in the Media Center.
5. It is acceptable to take a test on a book someone has read to a student, provided the student is able to take the test independently.
6. Points are awarded according to the number of correct responses and the readability level of the book.
7. Accelerated Reader is an individualized reading program. All students in a grade level may not have the same point requirements to reach their goals. Students are encouraged to work toward their personal goal. This is not a competition between students. It is designed to promote individual success in reading.
AR books can be identified easily in the New Destiny card catalog accessible anywhere you have Internet access at http://www.dekalb.k12.ga.us/evansdale/mediactr.html or in the school building via our school homepage (in the Library Media Center).
Please mark your calendar for the AR cut-off dates for this school year. Each child who has reached the indicated percentage of his or her goal by these cut-off dates will receive a prize the following week.
