What are AR book levels… and what are they not?
Students are tested to determine their “Zone of Proximal Development,” which is the range of text complexity within which they should be reading in order to make the most progress, and Accelerated Reader helps educators match students to books that will provide an appropriate level of challenge.
What book levels are and what they are not
ATOS book levels are consistent, reliable, and objective measures of text complexity that take into account the most important factors in determining text complexity. ATOS is a useful guide for librarians, parents, and teachers because it measures what it claims to measure.
The role of librarians
Because no formula could possibly identify all the variables involved in matching the right books with the right child, Accelerated Reader was never intended to replace the role of the educator. Some themes and literary devices used in a given book will not be fully appreciated by students who can follow its plot.
Understanding alternative reading levels
Every book with an Accelerated Reader quiz has been leveled by the same ATOS readability formula, which is the most consistent and accurate way to compare books in the program. Alternative reading levels are calculated in different ways and draw on different data to determine their results.
Calculating reading levels with ATOS
The ATOS Analyser is a simple online tool that can be used to calculate the ATOS level of any text.
How do I find the AR level of a book?
Step 1: Log in to MyOn and select the Library tab. Step 2: Select the Search option. Step 3: Select the funnel and then ATOS. Step 4: Select the box that corresponds to your child’s AR level (ATOS).
