Exemplar Reader Certification

The Exemplar Reader certification is not tracked in Accelerated Reader - the teacher must track it manually. To earn this certification, the student must independently read at least four books that appear on the exemplar lists in Appendix B of the Common Core State Standards - or texts of similar complexity that you identify - and accumulate a certain number of points by passing Reading Practice Quizzes. This benchmark encourages students to read books written at a level of complexity defined by the Common Core State Standards as the goal for their grade band. For more information, see the Exemplar Reader Certification document.
