Monitor Password Override for Book/Interest Level Preference

Use this preference to allow teachers and quiz monitors in your school to override Book Level Restrictions and Interest Level Restrictions set for individual students.

If you allow overrides, teachers and quiz monitors can enter the class monitor password for Accelerated Reader quizzes (set in the Monitor Password - Reading Quizzes preference) to allow students to take quizzes on books with restricted book levels or interest levels.

To allow overrides for Accelerated Reader date and time restrictions, see the Date and Time Restrictions preference for Accelerated Reader.

To allow overrides when students want to retake quizzes, see the Quiz Retake Restrictions preference.
