The School Dates and Times for Accelerated Reader preference allows you to set date restrictions, time restrictions, and weekend restrictions and to allow restrictions to be overridden using the monitor password. School and district administrators can change the preference settings, but all users can view the settings as described below.
Who can do this with default user permissions?
District Level Administrators, District Staff, School Level Administrators, School Staff, Teachers
District-level administrators and district staff can view the preference for all schools on your site. School-level administrators, school staff, and teachers can view the preference for their schools. Note: The preference settings remain from one school year to the next, so you should review the settings at the start of each new school year.
- Select Accelerated Reader Independent Reading on the Home page and then choose Preferences from the menu.
- Select Dates and Times for Accelerated Reader under the School Preferences on the Preferences page. (You may need to select the School Preferences heading to view the list of school preferences.)
- You will see the current settings for your schools. If the first box is checked for a school, students may only take quizzes between the dates shown.
If the second box is checked for a school, students cannot take quizzes on weekends (Saturdays and Sundays).
If the third box is checked, students can only take quizzes between the times specified.
If the last box is checked, teachers can override any of these restrictions by entering the monitor password.
- When you are done viewing the settings, select < Back to go back to the Preferences page.
