The Practice Parent Report is used to provide parents with information about their students' progress in practice work. You can send the report home to parents or provide it at parent meetings or conferences.

The Practice Parent Report can include information about students' Accelerated Reader quizzes, Accelerated Reader 360 skills practice assignments, Accelerated Math Instructional Practice assignments, Star Custom assessments and resources or partner assignments. (For a parent report about Star test scores, see the Star Parent Report.)

The report will show the student's percent correct on assignments and activities for the reporting time period and the school year. It will also include the student's percent correct goal if one has been set. (Keep in mind that goals may include more than one type of assignment, while the report is generated for one type of assignment at a time.) For Accelerated Math Instructional Practice, the report will include the number of subskills mastered, and for Star Custom assessments, you will see the number of skills mastered.

Follow these steps to print the report:

  1. If you are not already on the Reports page, select Reading Reports or Math Reports on the Home page. When you go to the Reports page, the tab that is open by default depends on the tile you selected on the Home page.
  2. Select Practice Parent Report. On the Accelerated Reader/Reading Practice tab, this is in the Parent Reports section at the bottom of the page as shown. On the Math Practice tab, this is in the Other Reports section at the bottom of the page.
  3. Note: If you have added the report to the Pinned Reports, you'll find it under that section at the top of the page.

  4. Select Choose Assignment Type (either the link or the button).
  5. In the window that opens, choose a product or type of resource in the first column; then, choose one assignment type in the second column. Select Apply.
  6. Select Choose Students (either the link or the button).
  7. Choose the students to include in the report. Teachers can only choose students in their own classes and groups.
    • In the popup window, if there is a Schools column, select a school. (This column isn't available if you only have access to one school.)
    • If the Teachers column is available, at the top of the column, choose either All Teachers (to choose all the teachers in the school) or Select Teachers (to choose specific teachers; check the ones you want in the list). This column is not available to teachers unless they are assigned to more than one school.
    • At the top of the Classes column, choose either All Classes (to choose all the classes for the teachers) or Select Classes (to choose specific classes; check the ones you want in the list).
    • Teachers and school staff will also see a Groups column. At the top of the Groups column, choose either All Groups or Select Groups; if you choose Select Groups, check the groups that you want to include. The first choice in the column is "Whole Class" or "Whole Classes"; choose this to report on the class(es) as a whole. Below that, you will see groups you created.
    • You may need to scroll to the right to see the Students column. At the top of the Students column, choose either All Students (to choose all the students) or Select Students (to choose specific students; check the ones you want in the list).
    • You can search the items in a column by clicking within that column and then typing Ctrl+F or control-F on the keyboard.

      When you are done making your choices, select Apply (or Cancel to close the window without saving your choices).
  8. If you want to use demographic data to focus the report on specific students, select Choose Demographics.
  9. By default, the "All" option is chosen for ethnicity, gender, language (the students' primary language, if specified), and grade level. To focus the report on specific groups, choose the "Select" option at the top of the appropriate column and then check your selections in that column. Note that ethnicity, gender, primary language, and grade level may be specified for students when you add them to the software, but only grades are required; other information may not be available for your students.


    In the example above, the user has selected one Language and three Grade Levels, while leaving Ethnicity and Gender at the default "All" options. Note: The Filter Reports by Ethnicity user permission may be set to prevent the use of ethnicities as a filter.

    By default, the "All" option is chosen for Characteristics. To focus the report on students with specific characteristics, choose Select Characteristics; then, check the characteristics that you are interested in. You must also choose any or all above the check boxes to specify whether students with any of the selected characteristics will be included in the report or only those with all of the selected characteristics.


    In the example above, the user selected two Characteristics (ADA and ESL). Because any is selected, the report will include students who are ADA, ESL, or both. If all had been selected, only students who are both ADA and ESL would be included. Note: The Filter Reports by Characteristics user permission may be set to prevent the use of characteristics as a filter.

    Once you have finished choosing demographic options, select Apply at the bottom of the window to save your choices (or Cancel to close the window without saving your choices).

  10. By default, the report will include the current school year. If you want to choose all time, a marking period, or custom dates instead, select the reporting period field.
  11. If you want to use one of the marking periods that have been added for your school, select the marking period in the list. (You can also choose "All Time".)

    If you want to use custom dates, select Custom. In the calendars, select the first date in the range; then, select the last date. (Use the arrows to the left and right of the months to go back or forward.)

  12. Next, use the Sort Students By drop-down list to choose whether to sort students on the report by their classes or groups, grade, last name, or teacher.
  13. Finally, choose the language for the report (English or Spanish).
  14. If you only want reports for students who have data, check Hide Students Without Data.
  15. Select Update Report under the report options.
  16. The report will open below the report options.
  17. To create a PDF file of the report that you can print, select the PDF icon in the top right corner of the page.
  18. The report will open in a new tab in your browser; use the browser or PDF options that are available to print the report.
  19. To go back to the Reports page, select the navigator icon in the top right corner of the page.
