Taking a Quiz:

A quiz is different to a STAR test because students only take a quiz after they have finished a book.  There are usually about 10 questions on the book that has been read. At the end of the quiz the students are given a percentage to show them how well they have done.There are some important rules for taking quizzes:
1) The book the child is quizzed on must be a book they have read in the last two weeks. AR is not a memory test but rather measuring reading ability.
2) A student cannot take a quiz until they have read the entire text.
3) Quizzes must be done individually, not with anyone’s help

Click the orange ‘Accelerated Reader’ tile
