After students have logged in and selected Accelerated Reader or Accelerated Reader 360, they can select Progress at the top of the page to view:
- their progress toward goals for the current marking period
- their Certifications, and
- their completed quizzes
My Goals/My Progress
The My Goals tab shows students their progress toward reading practice goals. If students don't have goals, the tab name is My Progress, and students can see information about their reading progress.
Viewing Progress for Students in Grades 3 and Up
For older students (typically grades 3 and higher depending on the goal model the teacher chose), students can see their progress toward their goal for points, the average level of books they've read, and average quiz scores (percent correct). If the teacher chose the rocket (grade 3-5) model, the points goal is shown as a rocket heading toward a planet, and the student can see the points they have earned and the goal. When the student meets the goal, the rocket reaches the planet, and the student sees fireworks and a congratulatory message. If there is no goal, the rocket is flying through space and the student sees the number of points earned.
If the teacher chose the goal model for grades 6 and up, the student's goal progress is shown on a line instead of with a rocket; all of the other information is shown in the same way.
Students using the goal models for grades 3 and up also have goals for average percent correct and either average book level or reading range. Average percent correct and average book level goals are shown as gauges where the student can see the goal and their own achievement. If students do not have goals, the Book Level gauge does not show a goal, while the Overall Quiz Scores gauge shows the goal at 85%.
If students have an English and/or Spanish reading range instead of an average book level goal, they see their reading range(s). They'll also see a message about how well they are doing at choosing books within their range.
Students also see statistics about their reading and their Star scores on the Unified scale (if they have scores in the selected marking period). The percentage of fiction versus nonfiction reading is based on the number of points earned for each. The percentage of Spanish versus English reading is only shown for students who have taken a Star Reading Spanish test and/or have passed an Accelerated Reader quiz in Spanish.
Viewing Progress for Younger Students
For younger students (typically grades K-2 depending on the teacher's goal model choice), progress is shown in terms of the tokens and badges earned. Students earn a token for each passed quiz: a star if they got some questions wrong and a trophy if they answered all the questions correctly. These tokens fill in the requirements for animal character badges. The student can see each character as they earn the number of tokens required for each badge; they can see the books that count toward a badge by selecting the badge.
Tokens for 0.5-point books (short books) go in Greenwood Glen, which is shown above. 1-point (medium) books go in Timber Park. 2-point (long) books go in Pinnacle Peak. Students will only see the areas that apply to their goal; for example, if the goal includes only 0.5-point books and 1-point books, students will see Greenwood Glen and Timber Park, but not Pinnacle Peak. Books that don't apply to the goal because of their points values go in Boundary Wilds so that students can see they read the books and passed the quizzes.
At the top of the My Goals tab, students can see statistics about their reading and the recommended book levels they should read at as shown above. If reading ranges are used, students will see the book levels that are right for them instead of the "Read at these levels" section.
This tab shows students' progress toward certification goals. This tab is not available to students whose class is using the K-2 goal model. It includes the following:
- Just under the tabs, students will see a marking period drop-down list and how much of the marking period has passed; to see goals for a different marking period, students select another one from the drop-down list.
- Under the marking period information, the student will see his or certification goal, including the requirements for the certification. Only passed Reading Practice quizzes count toward certification goals.
- Under the goal, the student will see the achieved certification goals for the current school year. (A number after the certification means the student re-certified at that level that many times.)
