Accelerated Reader



for Shikellamy Middle School Students

Students may take Accelerated Reader quizzes

any time the library is open, or with their

Communication Arts (7th & 8th grade students)

or Reading teacher (6th grade students).


  • AR is a program monitors a student's independent reading. Students pick a book, and take a quiz when they finish reading the book. Passing the quiz indicates the student both read and understood what they read. Most quizzes are ten questions, some longer books may have twenty question quizzes.


  • Accelerated Reader goals for each marking period are set by the Language Arts teachers.  Questions regarding grading policies should be directed to the classroom teacher.




  • To access Accelerated Reader in school, use your managed bookmarks and select Renaissance Place.  You cannot take AR tests at home.
