Schools pay a large sum of money for access to The Accelerated Reader Program. The tests can only be taken at school or, in some cases, a public library. Teachers want their students to take the test at school because otherwise they don't know if the student is the one answering the questions.

This is similar: You can register your child and they take a test on one of the listed books (many are also AR books). I love that I can see the test my son took to see what questions he missed. I know what areas to work on, rather than just getting a grade like the AR program does!


We use the bookadventure quiz as a practice for the AR test. It is a fun website and the kids earn points for (simple) prizes. Also, teachers can register their classes and use the program to supplement the AR program.

First, you must log in with your username and password. Then, search the book you want to take a quiz on. Finally, choose the correct book and take the quiz.

If I can, where can I login with my school username and password? Will they let me login with my school numbers? Can I login outside of my school's network or not? Thank you for answering my questions.

You can only log in at school. Like other tests, the teachers want some control of the test environment.

Since many of these programs cost money, you should check with your school district for information on what they are using.
If your child is being home schooled these programs should still be available for any child to use but you will have to obtain permission from the school district office but the school in your area can help you with the information you need.


There are plenty of sample sites but not the full program.

Once you are in a program this is a good form for keeping track of progress.

This appears to show only the available AR books. It does not provide access to quizzes.

I am trying to take a test, but I can't find a website that lets me.

You can only take the tests at school or sometimes at libraries during summer reading programs. The teachers don't want the tests taken at home because they don't know who is answering the questions.

Children and students have access to a program at school called the Accelerated Reader Program where they test on books they've read for points. I was wondering if there are websites that have similar tests where children/students can test out at home on books they've read.
