Summary

This paper provides an overview of Accelerated Reader, a system of computerized testing and record-keeping that supplements the regular classroom reading program. Accelerated Reader's primary goal is to increase literature-based reading practice. The program offers a computer-aided reading comprehension and management program intended to motivate students to read more and better books, believing that students who read well will do better in all other subjects. Accelerated Reader is currently used in approximately 43,000 schools throughout the United States. While the program is available for K-12, most of the sites using it are elementary and middle schools. Sections of the paper discuss background, philosophy and goals, program components, evidence of effectiveness, professional development and support, implementation, costs, considerations, contact information, and policy issues and questions.
