Renaissance Reader has a great support team, and generally, they are quick to respond when needed. The live chat tool is a life-saver when trying to get your problems solved in real-time. They also have a lot of online support articles that ensure that you can get your questions answered without necessarily having to use the live chat during the school day.

Renaissance Accelerated Reader is a program I have used with students for 9 years. It is so flexible and easy to use! I have seen the amazing benefits and an increase in the minutes my students read each day. I look forward to using this program next year and learning more about how it can help increase reading in our school.

AR support is available 24 hours a day. Therefore, our staff can contact when a question arises. AR has done such a great job with the layout of the program, it is basically easy to follow and use.

Renaissance has very helpful videos and articles in their help section. They also have an online community that you can join for free that encourages discussions on their products and ways to use them in different settings. They also offer many free webinars. One-on-one support usually comes from an instructional facilitator in our county.

I have been very pleased with this product, and I have always had a good experience with it. The website is reliable. There's good customer service if you are in need of it. Also, there is a large help section already done for you, so there's been little need for me to get any support.

I have used the online chat support. I always look through the online manual first, then try the chat if I still need help. The chat support's first response is always to cut and paste from the online manual, so I have to tell them I have already seen that before we can get to more information. I have found that they are thorough.

I rate Accelerated Reader a 10 because it is user friendly and it is a way to track student reading practice and progress. Teachers have all this data available when they need it or when meeting with parents or other peers to plan interventions for students. Parents also have access to check on their child's reading practice.
