How do I know my child’s Accelerated Reader level?

At the start of each term, students take a STAR reading test. This gives a zone of proximal development (ZPD) which is a broad idea of a student’s reading level. This is recorded in the school diary. The student will know what range of levels to try, and will have a target of points to reach at various points throughout the year. A book’s points are calculated using their given level and length. Students can read books above or below their given level, but it is often a more pleasurable reading experience when they read books that are neither too easy nor too hard.
