Teacher Lists

A teacher list is created in AR BookGuide to share the availability of books and quizzes in a class. Your school may or may not use AR BookGuide.

To access teacher lists in AR Bookfinder, you must use the keycode printed in the informational letter that was sent home with students to give to their parents or guardians.

  1. Type the keycode and select Go.
  2. Select the list that you would like to view.
  3. To sort the lists, select any one of the column headings: Name (of the teacher list), Last Updated, Title Count (number of books), and Teacher Notes.

Working with teacher lists

Add book titles from the teacher list to the AR BookBag

Sort the teacher list

To change the way the teacher list is organized, from the Sort By drop-down list, select Title, Author, Interest Level, Book Level, or Rating.

  • Title and Author: Alphabetical (A to Z). You cannot reverse the order (Z to A). Author sort is by author's last name.
  • Interest Level: Lower grade levels are listed first.
  • Book Level: The lowest book levels are listed first.
  • When students finish taking an Accelerated Reader Reading Practice Quiz for a book, they may vote to say how they liked the book.

    The star rating is calculated from all student votes (nationwide) for the past twelve months. It is updated weekly. Possible ratings are: 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, and 4 stars.

    If the book has not been rated, this field will say "Not yet rated."

Search for specific titles in the teacher list.

  1. Type keywords into the blank Keywords field.
  2. Select Go.

Move between the pages of the teacher list (if there are multiple pages).

  • Select Next and Previous, or, to go to a specific page, type the page number after Go to Page, and select Go.

If available, parents, teachers, and librarians (not students) can select Buy from Amazon.com to purchase the book on Amazon.com.

  • If you do not see Buy from Amazon.com, based on ISBN(s), a book matching that AR quiz is not available from Amazon.com.
  • Renaissance Learning cannot guarantee that a particular book will be available on Amazon.com.

Print the teacher list

For best performance, print jobs are limited to 1,000 titles or fewer.

  1. Select Print (near the upper-right corner of the list).
  2. Choose whether you want images of the book covers to print along with the book information.
  3. Choose how you want your list to be sorted: Title (default), Author Last Name, AR Quiz Number, or ATOS Book Level.
    • Title and Author Last Name: Alphabetical (A to Z). You cannot reverse the order (Z to A).
    • AR Quiz Number: Lower number quizzes are listed first.
    • ATOS Book Level: The lowest book levels are listed first. For more information, see Levels: Book, Interest, and Reading.
  4. Choose whether or not to include the locations of the books on the teacher list.
  5. Choose whether or not to include the call numbers of the books on the teacher list.

    A call number is a group of letters and numbers given to books in a library. Books are arranged in the library by call number.
  6. Select View Report. The report generates. When it is ready, the report will open in a browser window or a separate window.
  7. When you have finished, select Return to Teacher Lists or Return to AR BookBag.
