Accelerated Reader is a software program written by Renaissance Learning and used in the Brecksville-Broadview Heights Schools. The program encourages students to read, promotes reading comprehension, and motivates students to improve their reading skills.

After students select books and read them at their own pace, they use the computer to take a quiz on the book they've read. Both the student and the student's teacher then get immediate feedback through a report that's generated by the program.
Many of the books in Hilton's library have AR quizzes associated with them.  They are designated by colored tape on the spine of the book.  Books with orange tape are 0.2-1.9 level, blue tape are 2.0-2.9 level, red tape are 3.0-3.9 level, and brown tape are 4.0-9.9 level.  It is important that students read books at an appropriate level for them.  Some students read at grade level, some above grade level, and some below, and that's OK.  If you are not sure what level your child is reading at please consult their teacher.  If you have any other questions regarding AR please feel free to contact Rosanne Kraus in the Hilton Computer Lab.

When students read books and take quizzes they also earn points toward earning different reward certificates ie: Ready Reader, Rising Reader, Super Reader, Advanced Reader, Star Reader, and Classic Reader.  Click on the link below to see how this program works and the requirements for each certificate.  Below you will also find links to help your child choose books to help them achieve the certificate goal that is set for them.  When a student achieves a certificate they are recognized on the announcements and called down to receive that certificate.

The list of book quizzes available at each school varies. Hilton's AR quiz lists are available in several formats and can be found below:
