  1. On the Home page, select Accelerated Reader or Accelerated Reader 360 Independent Reading; then, select Manage Books & Quizzes.
  2. On the Manage Content page, select Manage Books & Quizzes.
  3. On the Manage Books and Quizzes page, select viewing Article Quizzes in the sentence at the top of the page. Then, select the school name in the sentence, select a school in the window that opens, and select Apply.
  4.   

  5. You will see the Article Quizzes that are available for your school (or the school you selected).
  6. Find the quiz that you want to preview.

    You can use the Sort by drop-down list to sort the list by title (A to Z or Z to A) or by relevance to a keyword that you search for.

    To find specific quizzes, use the search field to search for them. You can search by words in the title, description, or article.

    To find quizzes that meet specific criteria, click Filters to the right of the search field. Then, select the filter that you want to use on the left. You can choose to see quizzes quizzes worth a certain range of points (article quizzes are worth one point), quiz titles within a specific book-level range (ATOS and/or Lexile® Measure), and/or quizzes published in a specific date range. For filters with ranges, drag the two circles to set the lower and upper ends of the range. In the example below, ATOS Book Level ranges from 4 to 6 will be included.

    To clear any filters that you have selected, click Clear All at the bottom of the filter pop-up window.

    To close the filter window and see the results for the filters you have chosen, select Close in the bottom-right corner of the filter window. The quizzes that match your criteria will be listed, and you will see the filters you applied below the search field. To remove any of the filters and see the adjusted list of quizzes, select X () on that filter. To remove all filters, select Clear All to the right of the filters.

  7. To see an article and its quiz as a student will see them, select View Article/Quiz.
