Authorisation Password Preference

This preference can be found under the School Student Quizzing preferences.

The setting shows the authorisation password that has been created for Accelerated Reader. This password must be used whenever the program asks for an authorisation password; teachers, administrators and staff cannot use their own passwords.

If you require an authorisation password in certain instances (using the Authorisation Password Required Preference) and/or you allow your teachers to override blocks and restrictions on quizzing (using the Override Authorisation Preference), you should use this preference to set the password that you want your teachers to use.

To view or change the Authorisation Password, follow these steps:

  1. On the Home page, click Accelerated Reader; then, click Preferences in the menu that opens.
  2. Click Student Quizzing in the School Preferences section of the Preferences page.
  3. If necessary, choose a school from the School drop-down list on the View School Student Quizzing Preferences page. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you can see the current Authorisation Password.

If you are a school administrator or school network administrator, you will also have an Edit Student Quizzing link at the top of the page. If you want to change the Authorisation Password preference, select the link.

If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you can then change the Authorisation Password for the selected school. If you change this setting or other settings on the page, click Save to save your changes or Cancel to leave the page without saving.
