AR Home Connect
Helping teachers and librarians manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice.
AR is a computer program that helps teachers and librarians manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his own level and reads it at his own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer. (Passing the quiz is an indication that your child understood what was read.) AR gives children, teachers, and librarians feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher then uses to help your child set goals and direct ongoing reading practice.
You can access your child’s AR information in Renaissance Home Connect™ from a computer with web access. You may obtain your log-in information from your classroom teacher or the librarian. Once in the program, you can view your child’s progress toward goals, points, and books read to monitor your child’s success. You can also access AR BookFinder to search for titles of interest. You can only access information about your child.
