How Students View Progress on Quizzes Taken

After students have logged in and selected Accelerated Reader or Accelerated Reader 360, they can select Progress at the top of the page to view:

  • their progress toward goals for the current marking period
  • their Certifications, and
  • their completed quizzes

My Goals

For older students, this tab includes the following:

  • Just under the tabs, students will see where today is in the current marking period and how much time remains in that marking period; to see goals for a different marking period, students select another one from the drop-down list.
  • Under that, students will see their Reading Practice goals. Goals may have been set for the student's average percent correct, total points earned, and average book level. The orange bars show the student's progress toward each goal. means the student has met the goal exactly. means the student has done better than the goal required.
  • Goals are based on students' Reading Practice Quizzes, Other Reading Quizzes, and Article Quizzes.

    Points goals are for points earned on the quizzes. Students can see the percentage of the goal that they have earned.

    Percent Correct goals are for students' scores on the quizzes.

    Book level goals are for the average book level for the quizzes taken. Book level goals will always be based on the ATOS book level.

    Note that only passed quizzes or assignments count toward goals; the number of passed activities is shown to the right.

  • To the right, the student will see information about his or her reading, including the number of words read, the percent of reading that has been fiction or nonfiction, the number of activities completed, the number passed, and the student's Zone of Proximal Development.
  • If students have math goals for Accelerated Math Instructional Practice and Star Custom work, they will also see math goals on this page (unless they are viewing the page through Renaissance Home Connect).

For primary students, this view includes:

  • The flower shows the student's progress toward the points goal for the current marking period based on their Reading Practice Quizzes, Other Reading Quizzes, and Article Quizzes. The student sees the goal just under "My Reading Goals"; in the example below, the goal is 10 points.
  • If the teacher has set a points goal for the current marking period, the flower pot shows how many points the student has earned, and the flower fills in as the student gets closer to the goal. The points count starts over whenever a new marking period starts. Below the flower pot, the student can see the percentage of the goal that he or she has earned.

    If there is no goal, the flower pot counts up to 5 points at a time, and the flower fills in as the student gets closer to 5 points. The points count starts over every time the student has earned 5 points.

  • The sun over the flower shows the student how she or he is doing on the percent correct goal that the teacher has set for the marking period. The student sees a sun with a smiling face if his or her average percent correct on quizzes is above the goal (or above 85% if no goal is set). Reading Practice Quizzes, Other Reading Quizzes, and Article Quizzes count toward this goal.
  • If the student has not met the goal (or 85% if there is no goal), the student will only see an outline of the sun.

  • The lines show where today is in the marking period and the date of the end of the marking period. The line marked "Today" helps the student see how many points he or she should have achieved by today to be on track to meet the goal.
  • Primary students do not see their progress for book level goals.

    If students have completed Accelerated Math Instructional Practice assignments, they will also see a flower for their math work (unless they are viewing the page through Renaissance Home Connect).

My Certifications

This tab shows students' progress toward certification goals. It includes the following:

  • Just under the tabs, students will see where today is in the current marking period and how much time remains in that marking period; to see goals for a different marking period, students select another one from the drop-down list.
  • Under the marking period information, the student will see his or certification goal, including the requirements for the certification. Only passed Reading Practice quizzes count toward certification goals.
  • Under the goal, the student will see the achieved certification goals for the current school year. (A number after the certification means the student re-certified at that level that many times.)
