Accelerated Reader is a progress monitoring assessment used by both the elementary and high school. It primarily determines whether or not a child has read a book. The program also provides additional information to teachers regarding student reading levels, amounts of reading, and other variables related to reading comprehension.

There are three steps to using Accelerated Reader. First, students choose and read a fiction, non-fiction book. Second, students take a quiz at the computer. Third, the teacher receives information that is intended to assist, motivate reading, monitor progress, and target instruction.

The TOPS Report (The Opportunity to Praise Students) is printed after a child takes a test. This allows students to have immediate feedback on their performance, and to alert teachers to anyone having difficulty.
