- To open the Accelerated Reader Record Book, on the Home page, select Accelerated Reader 360 Independent Reading; then, select Record Book & Goals in the menu.
You can also select Reports on the Home page and select Accelerated Reader / Reading Practice if a menu opens when you select the tile. Then, on the Accelerated Reader / Reading Practice tab, select AR Record Book & Goals.
- Select the Latest Quiz tab.
Selecting the School and Class
At the top of the page, you will see a School drop-down list if you have access to more than one school and a Class drop-down list if you have access to more than one class. Use the drop-down list(s) to select the school and class whose information you want to view. You can view information for one class at a time.
If the Marking Period drop-down list is available, it has no effect on the Latest Quiz tab; it is used for the Student Goals tab.
Once you've chosen the class you want to work with, notice the school year summary information that is shown at the top of the page. You'll see your students' average book level, the number of books they've read this school year, the number of articles they've read, the percentage of nonfiction they've read, and the number of words they've learned (as shown through Vocabulary Quizzes).
Selecting the Quiz Type
When you first come to the Record Book's Latest Quiz tab, you'll see the students' latest Reading Practice Quizzes. If you want to see information for another quiz type (Vocabulary Practice Quizzes, Literacy Skills Quizzes, Other Reading Quizzes, or Article Quizzes), select the quiz type menu and choose the quiz type that you want to see.
Viewing the Latest Quizzes for the Class
You will see information about the latest quiz that each student has taken (based on the quiz type that you selected). The table includes the quiz date, title, ATOS book level (or Lexile® Measure) of the quiz, and the quiz score. Next to each quiz score, you will see a check mark () if the student passed the quiz or an exclamation point () if the student failed the quiz. In the example below, most students have passed their latest quizzes, but Autumn has failed her most recent quiz. For more information about how students pass quizzes, see Passing Percentage.
The Lexile® Goals preference determines whether the ATOS book level or Lexile® Measure is shown in the Record Book.
Deactivated quizzes aren't shown on the Record Book's Latest Quiz tab, but if you select a student's name, you will see any deactivated quizzes for that student in the list on the Student Details page on the Quizzes tab.
If the student has taken a Star Reading test, and the book is outside of the student's Zone of Proximal Development or Lexile® Range, you will see a symbol next to the book level that shows you whether the book was above () or below () the ZPD or Lexile® Range. (If Lexile® Ranges are being shown, you will see and .) Hover over the symbol to see ideas for potential next steps. In the example below, Hannah's latest quiz is on a book that is above her ZPD.
By default, the table is sorted by students' last names. If you want to sort by one of the other columns (quiz date, title, ATOS book level/Lexile® Measure, or quiz score), select the column heading once to sort in ascending order; select it again to sort in descending order.
Viewing More Information for Individual Students
Select a student's name to see a list of quizzes that student has taken, or to see more information for that student (Zone of Proximal Development or Lexile® Range, number of books read, number of articles read, percent nonfiction, and number of words learned through Vocabulary Practice). When you view the student details, you can also view the student's TOPS Reports, rescore quizzes, transfer quizzes to other students, edit a quiz date, or deactivate quizzes.
Printing and Reports
If you want to print the page, select PDF in the gray bar toward the top of the page.
If you want to the Reports page, select the Reports icon in the gray bar.
Awarding Points and Recording Points Used
If your school awards extra points to students and allows students to "spend" their points in classroom activities, select Track Awarded/Used Points to add points that were awarded and to record points used. Note that awarded or used points are not shown in reports and do not affect goals; only points earned from quizzes count toward students' point goals or certification goals.
Other Tabs in the Record Book
To see or set your students' reading goals, select the Student Goals tab. (The tab name is Set Up Goals if you haven't set student goals for this class yet.)
To see or set your student's certification goals, select the Certifications tab. This tab is not available if you have chosen the K-2 goal model for your class; student badge goals are used instead of certifications.
