Viewing/Editing the Student Experience Preference

District and school administrators can use this preference to select which students will see which student interface. By default, grades K - 3 will see the Primary interface, while grades 4 and up will see the independent reader interface. For information about the differences between the two, see Accelerated Reader Primary Student Experience and How Students View Progress on Quizzes Taken.

Who can do this with default user permissions?

District Level Administrators, School Level Administrators

District-level administrators can set the preference for all schools on your site. School-level administrators can set the preference for their schools. Other staff and teachers cannot set the preference unless they have been granted special permissions, but they can view the settings.

  1. Select Accelerated Reader Independent Reading on the Home page and then choose Preferences from the menu.
  2. Select Student Experience under the School Preferences on the Preferences page.
  3. Your schools are listed. For each school, move the circles to choose the range of grades that will see the primary student experience. Once you have selected one of the circles, you can also use the left and right arrows to decrease or increase the grade by 1.
  4. The grades shown above the circles and those in between will see the primary student interface. Other students will see the independent reader interface. In the example below, grades K-3 will see the primary interface.

    If you want to use the same setting for all of your schools, select Set All above the table.

    In the popup window, set the range; then, select Apply to All. (You still need to save your changes.)

  5. Select Save Changes to save your settings. (Select < Back to go back to the Preferences page.)
