Lovett Elementary’s 2014-2015 Accelerated Reader Policy

  • The Renaissance Learning Accelerated Reader (AR) Program is a computerized testing tool that Lovett Elementary uses to help students increase their reading comprehension growth by reading books that meet their targeted reading range and taking tests to determine how well they understand what they have read.

  • Not every book has an AR test; however, the size of our test database makes it pretty easy for every student to find a book to enjoy! Refer to Lovett’s website or for a complete listing of all books of which Lovett has an AR test.

  • Each 9 Weeks, students are required to earn a specified amount of AR points within their ZPD (AR tests can NOT be taken on books lower than 4.0) by the 2:31 P.M. on the specified deadline date.

    • Please monitor your progress in the reading of your AR books throughout the nine weeks. To eliminate any of the stresses that can occur when turning something in on a due date, please strive to have all books read and all AR tests taken before the due date.

    • Please strive to read more books than the required amount to help you accumulate as many AR points as possible.

    • Points accumulated above the required amount will NOT carry over into the following nine week grading period; however, they do accumulate into your overall end of the year AR earnings.

  • Students will receive 1 summative test grade at midterm and end of the term from earning the required AR points.

    • If a student does not earn the required AR points, then he/she will be graded based on the points earned.

    • If a student earns 0 AR points, then he/she will receive a 0 for a summative test grade.

  • To meet Lovett’s AR expectations, students should use time provided during school hours to read and should read 20+ minutes each afternoon at home as part of their reading homework.

  • To ensure that each student is graded solely according to his or her own AR merits, Lovett Elementary has established the following AR Policy:

1. No student will take an AR test for another student.

  1. No student will give another student answers to an AR test.

  2. No student will allow another student to view one’s answers as he/she takes an AR test.

*If a student cheats or allows another student to cheat from him/her, BOTH students will receive an

office referral and a zero for their AR summative test grade.


  1. Have your computer, the AR book, AR Log Form, and an ink pen on your desk.

2. Pull up the test in the AR database and ask the teacher to come to your desk to put in the password

for you to take the test.

3. As you take the test, read carefully, stay focused, and tune out everything else that is going on. Do NOT

communicate with another student and do NOT allow another student to look at your screen.

4. After completing the test, fill out the rest of the information on your AR Log Form in ink.

5. After filling out your AR Log Form, ask the teacher to come and view your test results and have him/her sign your

AR Log Form. (*No teacher signature on AR Log Form = No credit for AR test taken)

  • AR Incentives:

    1. Earning the required amount of AR points helps to increase your overall reading grade average.

    2. Students who earn 5 extra points or more above the required amount will be able to attend the fun-filled AR Party where they will be awarded prizes and receive treats.

    3. On Awards Day in May, medals are given to students who have accumulated 100 or more AR points with 70% accuracy throughout the entire school year, and a trophy is given for the one student in the school who has earned the most overall points.

*The AR progress of each student can be monitored online at https:
