Christ the Redeemer celebrates success in the Accelerated Reader programme

On Friday 2 June the children of Christ the Redeemer Primary School, Lagmore celebrated major success in the Accelerated Reader programme.

Accelerated Reader is a computer-based reading assessment programme that helps teachers manage and monitor children's independent reading practice. Each child selects books pitched at their own level as determined by their STAR reading test result. Having read the book the children take a short quiz on the computer to check their understanding of what they have just read. In doing so they build up points towards a differentiated point’s target.

The 'Master School' award is awarded to top performing schools that have a school-wide average of 25 minutes engaged in daily reading time, whilst 80% or more of students enrolled in classes, have 85% or higher average percent correct on their Reading Practice Quizzes.
