Who can do this with default user permissions?

The Point Club Summary Report lists the students who qualify for point clubs by earning a certain number of points by taking Accelerated Reader quizzes. You can generate this report for All Reading (which includes Reading Practice Quizzes, Other Reading Quizzes, and Article Quizzes) or just one of those quiz types. The default point clubs are for students who have earned 25 points, 50 points, 100 points, 250 points, and 500 points, but you can change the point club levels on the report and choose the number of point clubs to include.

For each student, the reports shows the student's name, point club attained (or highest point club attained), grade, teacher, the total points the student earned, and the student's average percent correct. If you group the students on the report, it will include a summary for each class and group, grade, or point club telling you how many students are in each club.

  1. If you are not already on the Reports page, select Reports on the Home page; then, select Accelerated Reader / Reading Practice in the menu that opens.
  2. The Reports page will open with the Accelerated Reader / Reading Practice tab selected.

  3. Select Point Club Summary Report in the Certification and Achievement section of the page. (If you have added the report to the Pinned Reports, you'll find it under that section at the top of the page.)
  4. Use the Quiz Type drop-down list to choose the type of quiz to report on: All Reading (which includes Reading Practice Quizzes, Other Reading Quizzes, and Article Quizzes), Reading Practice quizzes only, Other Reading quizzes only, or Article Quizzes only.
  5. If you need to change the students who are selected by default, select Change Students.
  6. Then, 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 most teachers.
    • 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).
  7. If you want to use demographic data to focus the report on specific students, select Choose Demographics.
  8. 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).

  9. Next, choose which point clubs to include.
  10. If you want to change the point club levels themselves, click in the fields for each point club and enter the new point levels that you want to use.

    Check the point clubs that you want to include on the report.

  11. Next, select an option under "For Each Student" to choose whether to include all of the point clubs that each student has earned or only the highest point club that each student has earned. If you choose Show All Point Clubs, students will be listed for each point club they have earned during the report time period.
  12. Use the Group by drop-down list to choose whether to group students on the report by their point clubs, by classes and groups, by grade, or not at all (Do Not Group).
  13. 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 date field.
  14. 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. Then, type the start and end dates in the fields (using four digits for the year), or select the start date and then the end date in the calendar (use the arrows to the left and right of the months to go back or forward). When you're done, select Apply.

  15. If you only want to include students who have data, check Hide Groups Without Data.
  16. Select Update Report under the report options. The report will open under those 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. When you're ready to leave the page, you can select the Home button to go back to the Home page. To go back to the Reports page, select the Reports button (circled below) or the Back to Reports link.
