"Read The Most From Coast To Coast,” a national reading event set for February 27, challenges
students to shatter the national one-day record for Accelerated Reader Quiz-taking.
Accelerated Reader, a reading management software program for K12 schools, helps educators
measure and improve reading comprehension levels.
"Students read a book at the appropriate level and then take a quiz on a computer," said Mrs.
Barrett, the S.E.S. Assistant Principal. "The quiz assesses general comprehension of the book just read.
Accelerated Reader scores the quiz, monitors results, generates reports, and provides a platform
to manage individual reading practice."
Read the Most From Coast To Coast enables students to take part in a shared reading adventure,
and, at the same time, show the world they understood what they’ve read.
The one-day record for Accelerated Reader Quiz-taking is well above 2 million quizzes. On
February 27, educators will be able to see the progress toward the national goal at
www.renlearn.com/readthemost . This year we hope to “Strive for Five” million quizzes taken.
"We're excited about the event," said Mrs. Barrett, the e-learning coordinator. "We expect to see
many happy faces when the national AR quiz goal is shattered."
