Accelerated Reader and Star Reading
KS2 pupils use Accelerated Reader, a reading program that helps teachers support and monitor children’s reading practice. Pupils pick a book at their own level and read it at their own pace. When finished, pupils take a short online quiz to measure how much of the book they understood. Star Reading is a complementary test, taken online, and is used to measure each pupil’s reading level. This multiple-choice test is taken at various times throughout the school year and results are used to generate the appropriate reading level for individual pupils. Since its introduction in 2018, achievement in reading has improved significantly.
