Q:

Is it possible to take an Accelerated Reader test at home?

A:

Quick Answer

Renaissance Learning offers online quizzes and tests for their Accelerated Reader program; these tests can be taken at home or anywhere one can access the Internet. Access to the Renaissance Learning site is free, and there are multiple free quizzes available on the website, including quizzes that cover topics, such as reading practice for different reading levels, early reader quizzes, vocabulary practice and literacy skills quizzes. The Renaissance Learning Accelerated Reader program also has a desktop software version that is typically used as school under teacher supervision, meaning these quizzes are typically not available to be taken at home.

Full Answer

The Accelerated Reader program is a proprietary learning tool that is used to assess a student's reading level and pair that student with specific books and other reading materials that matches the level displayed on the assessment quiz. There are also components of the program, including quizzes, that are designed to determine whether students have actually completed reading assignments. The free quizzes available on the Renaissance Learning website represent a small part of the total available program and may not be a viable alternative to actually going through the full program. Critics of the Accelerated Reader program have noted that the program seems largely designed to focus on recall for the final assessment quizzes.
