Impact of Accelerated Reader on Overall Academic Achievement and School Attendance
Multiple schools, NA (city), Texas (TX)
DETAILS: Design: Quasi-experimental.
RESULTS: Accelerated Reader schools performed statistically significantly better on the Texas Assessment of Academic Skills (TAAS) than non-Accelerated Reader schools in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. Accelerated Reader schools also showed significantly higher attendance rates than non-Accelerated Reader schools; Accelerated Reader had the greatest effects on urban schools with low socioeconomic status; and gains in academic performance also increased with the length of time schools owned Accelerated Reader.
