Keeping this in consideration, how do you set an AR goal?

To set the goal for points use the Goal –Setting chart (this can be found on the media center webpage, click on “teacher tools” on the left side of the page). This is the number of points you want the students to get by the end of the marking period. This can also be adjusted as you go along.

Beside above, how do you pass an AR test without reading the book? Steps

  3. Go to the Sparknotes and/or CliffsNotes websites.
  4. If your book is not on these websites, do a Google search on the book title.

Beside above, what is the AR level of a book?

The book level is a measure of the complexity of the text. ATOS, the readability formula used to assess text complexity for AR, is applied consistently to every one of the 26,000+ books we have quizzed. The ATOS formula used in Accelerated Reader analyses the full text of a book, not merely short passages.
