Average Percentage Correct Target

There are four targets that you can set for your students using the Reading Practice Targets Record Book: average percentage correct, daily reading time, points and average book level (using the book level selected in the Book Level Settings).

The minimum target for average percentage correct on Reading Practice Quizzes is 85 per cent, and this is the default setting in Accelerated Reader. This is the most important target for students to achieve because it indicates that students are comprehending what they read. Average percentage correct is the average of the scores the student received on the Reading Practice Quizzes he or she took during a particular marking period. Because some students can benefit from even more success, you have the option of increasing the target by 1 per cent increments up to 90 per cent.

Reading Practice targets are different from the Reading Practice certification targets that are set in the Reading Practice Certifications Record Book.
