Monitor Password - Reading Quizzes Preference

Use this preference to set the monitor password for Accelerated Reader reading quizzes for your classes. The monitor password is required when you stop a quiz; using the Password Requirement preference, you can choose whether the password is also required before and/or after reading quizzes.

Note that you can set the monitor password for each class. The monitor password for Star tests is set in a separate preference named Monitor Password - Star Tests.

How to get to this preference

To get to the Monitor Password - Reading Quizzes preference page, follow these steps:

  1. On the Home page, select your name in the top right corner. Then, choose Edit Preferences from the menu that opens.
  2. You can also select Accelerated Reader Independent Reading or one of the Star products on the Home page and then choose Preferences from the popup menu.

  3. Select Monitor Password - Reading Quizzes under the Class Preferences on the Preferences page.

How to set the preference

Who can do this with default user permissions?

District-level administrators, school-level administrators, teachers

District-level administrators can set the preference for all classes at all schools. School-level administrators can set the preference for all classes at their schools. Teachers can set the preference for their classes. Other staff cannot set the preference unless they have been granted special permissions, but they can view the settings.

  1. By default, all of your classes are listed.
  2. If you want to set the preference for specific classes, select the link under the preference name.

    If necessary, select a school in the first column. In the right column, you can either select All Classes and Groups or choose Select Classes and Groups and check the classes. When you're done, select Apply.

    You can search the items in a column by clicking within that column and then typing Ctrl+F or control-F on the keyboard.

  3. Your classes are listed. For each class, enter the monitor password that you want to use for Accelerated Reader reading quizzes. Note: Monitor passwords are case-sensitive, so be sure to use the same capitalization that you expect your teachers to use (for example, MonitorPW is different from monitorpw).
  4. If you want to use the same setting for all of the selected classes, select Set All above the table.

    In the popup window, enter the password that you want to use; 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.)
