Overall Satisfaction with Renaissance Accelerated Reader

I use Renaissance Accelerated Reader in our school to help monitor students' successes, strengths, and weaknesses in reading. Students take tests after reading their books and it assesses if they comprehend what they are reading. It also has many Vocabulary Activities attached to each of the books they read to help them with their vocabulary, too. We have no problems with Renaissance Accelerated Reader.
  • Assesses Comprehension
  • Creates Data Reports to help monitor students
  • Has great Vocabulary Quizzes that complement the books they read.
  • Training for how the reports have changed over the past several years.
  • Reports
  • Book Quizzes
  • Students see success and creates confidence, even in the shy students.
I love Renaissance Accelerated Reader because it is always consistent and it tries to keep up with and turn out products that will engage students. Accelerated Reader is the best at what it does and gives me great data to help monitor my students' reading comprehension without creating extra work to do in my class.

I appreciate AR because it helps the student to see if they are comprehending a particular ZPD level. It is detailed in the report to be able to conference with students and show them what they may adjust to be more successful. It also shows the student if they are staying in their "ZPD comfort zone" and not challenging themselves enough.
