How Students Read Articles and Take Quizzes

In addition to taking quizzes on books, Accelerated Reader students can read high-interest non-fiction articles that are included with software, and they can take quizzes on the articles they read. Students follow the steps below to read articles and take quizzes. Teachers can see the students' results on the article quizzes.

  1. On the Home page, select Accelerated Reader Articles.
  2. There are three ways for students to find an article that they would like to read:
    • Select Read & Quiz for one of the new articles that are listed on the page.
    • To search for articles on a specific subject, enter a word in the search field at the top of the page; then, press the enter key or select the magnifying glass. Then, scroll through the list until you see an article that interests you and select Read & Quiz for that article.
    • Select one of the topics (such as Science, Culture or Animals). Then, scroll through the list until you see an article that interests you and select Read & Quiz for that article.

    Students will see articles for their year, one year below and one year above.

  3. The article will open. Read through it carefully.
  4. When you have finished, at the bottom of the page, select Finish. Select Finish again in the message that opens.
  5. On the next page, select Take Quiz.
  6. The quiz will open.
  7. If the program asks for an authorisation password before the quiz, the teacher needs to enter the password. When this happens, the password is required by the School or Class Student Quizzing preferences.

    Date and Time Restrictions may also prevent students from taking quizzes on certain days or times; if so, you may be able to override the restrictions using the authorisation password (depending on the preference settings).

  8. Select an answer to each question and then select Next >. After the last question, select Finish.
  9. After you finish the quiz, you will see your score. Select Exit to go back to the Home page.

Students' quiz results are listed under a year-long AR 360 Instructional Practice Plan on the Track Student Work page in the Reading Dashboard.
