There are several reader certification levels that you can set as goals for your students. Each one has its own requirements that the students must meet to be certified at that level. Advanced Reader is one of the available reader certification levels.
Certification goals are different from other Reading Practice goals (such as percent correct, average book level, and points). Certification goals are not available if you have chosen to use the K-2 goal model for Reading Practice goals; students earn badges in that goal model instead of certifications.
To earn Advanced Reader, the student must Independently read three books with a 3.0 or higher ATOS Book Level (or 510L Lexile® Measure) that are each worth at least two points, and the student must pass Reading Practice Quizzes for the books.
We recommend that a student recertify no more than five times at this level.
An Advanced Reader certification goal must be set for students in order for the software to track the students' progress toward the certification and award it automatically.
You can print customizable award certificates using the Certificates for Student Achievement Report.
