Accelerated Reader (also known as "AR")
Students participate in the AR program during the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth grading periods. Each student will have a reading goal based on the score he/she receives on the STAR test. Please contact your child's teacher for details on your child's goals.
Tuloso-Midway ISD now uses the AR Enterprise program. Through this on-line program, our students have access to EVERY AR quiz- over 100,000 at last count! This means that almost every book in our library, in the classroom libraries, and in our students' personal libraries has an AR test immediately available to our students. This makes it possible for our students to have a large selection of books from which to choose while participating in the AR program.
During the first grading period, all students will be given the STAR test, which will determine each student's reading range. Students will be encouraged to choose books within their range and will be expected to take AR tests on them. To determine the reading levels of books in your child's personal book collection, go to http://www.arbookfind.com. You can search by title or author.
