Siple's AR Requirements

Mrs. Siples Accelerated Reader (AR) Program

All of my students will be using the Accelerated Reader (AR) computer program to track their reading comprehension for their SSR novels.  SSR will remain the same and will continue to be graded each Monday.  However, you will now be required to take an AR quiz on each book you complete.

CHANGES:

·       Each nine-week grading period academic students will need to earn at least 10 points.

·       Each nine-week grading period advanced students will need to earn at least 20 points.

·       You will need to take an AR quiz for each book you finish, and print out a copy of your results for Mrs. Siple. 

·       AR quizzes can be taken during your study hall or ninth periods.  See Mrs. Siple for passes.

·       Students will no longer be required to fill out a paper from their file folders for each book they finish.

·       You will be given a final AR grade at the end of each nine-week grading period.

Things to know:

·       The AR program ranks books on a point system according to reading level, length, etc. 

·       Before you pick a book, check to make sure you know how many points it is worth. (All of Mrs. Siples books have been checked and there is a list for you to look up the point amount for each book.)

·       When taking the quiz, your final grade on that quiz will determine the points you earned.

·       You can only take each quiz once.  There are no re-takes!
