Favourite Books Report

The Favourite Books Report is one of the Reading Practice reports. It provides feedback on which books your students liked best. For this report to have useful data in it, the Book Voting Preference must be enabled. For best results, this report should be run for a single class or group of classes in the same year and for a date range of not more than one year.

For each book that received two or more votes, the report shows the book's rank, number of students who voted on it, its rating (the ratings are described at the bottom of each page), quiz number, title, author, book level, points and fiction/non-fiction classification. The report lists the top ten ranked books.

To generate the report, follow these steps:

  1. On the Home page, click Accelerated Reader; then, click Reports in the menu that opens.
  2. On the Reports page, click Reading Practice.
  3. On the Select a Reading Practice Report page, if necessary, choose a school from the School drop-down list.

    • Whether to print the selected report options on the report
