Who can do this with default permissions?

District Level Administrators, District Dashboard Owners, District Staff, School Level Administrators, Teachers

First, on the Home page, select Accelerated Reader 360 Independent Reading; then, select Record Book & Goals in the menu.

If you have access to more than one school and/or more than one class, use the drop-down lists at the top of the page to choose the school and class whose information you want to see.

Select the Goals tab to see a class view of your students' current reading goals.

Select a specific student to see all of the student's goals for this school year - past, current, and future.

Changing the Selected Student

Use the Student drop-down list at the top of the page to view a different student's information. You cannot change the class or school in the Student Details, but you can change them if you select < Back to go back to the Goals tab in the class Record Book.

Viewing the Student's Goals

The Goals tab shows you a list of the student's goals (past, current, and future) for this school year.

For each marking period that has goals set, the table shows the student's Star Reading Grade Equivalent score (if applicable) and test date and the student's suggested ATOS Zone of Proximal Development. Then, the table shows the student's goals and actual achievement for average ATOS book level, average percent correct, and total points for the marking period. You'll also see the daily reading time that you've selected for the student for the marking period. For the total points goal, you'll also see the percentage of the goal that has been achieved.

Goals that aren't linked to a specific marking period are labeled "Custom Dates." These goals may have been created using a previous version of the software, or the marking period that was originally selected for the goal may have been deleted. Star test information is not shown for goals with custom dates.

Select the Marking Period column heading to choose whether to sort the marking periods in ascending or descending order.

If you want to delete the reading goals for a marking period, select Delete in the row for that marking period. Administrators and teachers can delete goals; other users do not have the link. All three goals (book level, percent correct, and points) will be deleted for the marking period; deleted goals no longer appear on student progress pages or in reports. When you select Delete, a message will ask if you are sure that you want to delete the goals. If so, select Delete in the message to continue; if not, select Cancel.

If you want to delete a single goal for the marking period (not all three), return to the class view Goals tab. For book level, percentage correct, and points goals, simply remove the goal value from the table and save. For daily reading time, select None.

Students can see their progress toward average book level, average percent correct, and points goals. For more information, see How Students View Progress on Quizzes Taken.

Viewing the Student's Statistics

Regardless of the tab selected on the Student Details page, at the top of the page, you'll see the following information for the selected student:

  • Zone of Proximal Development or Lexile┬« Range (if the student has taken a Star Reading test; the value shown depends on the Lexile┬« Range preference)
  • the number of books the student has read this school year (based on the number of passed Reading Practice Quizzes and Other Reading Quizzes)
  • the number of articles the student has read this school year (based on the number of passed article quizzes)
  • the percentage of reading that has been nonfiction (based on the number of passed quizzes)
  • the number of words the student has learned based on Vocabulary Practice Quizzes
