AR (Accelerated Reader)

Nixon students in second through sixth grades participate in AR. This program begins with students completing the STAR Reading Test. Based on the results, each student is given a ZPD reading range and a points goal. Students should read books within this range, and then take quizzes in AR. The higher a student scores on a test the more points he/she will be given towards a 100% goal. There are 3 marking periods for AR.
