I can understand the texts that I read You must score at or higher than 80% cumulatively on your AR test scores. You need to read and test on a minimum of three books. (Consideration given for books of 20 or more points) They need to be at a reasonably challenging level. The Boxcar Children, Clifford, or Curious George are NOT something you test on. I can determine the meaning of words I read You must score an 80% on an academic vocabulary test for 8 th grade students administered by the language arts teachers at the end of each quarter. I can read at the 8 th grade level Based on your STAR Reading Grade Equivalent Score, you read at grade level. You are allowed to read books of any level you’d like (within reason, not Curious George, Clifford, or Junie B Jones UNLESS those truly are where you are at) This portion of your grade is based solely on your STAR test score. I can read independently. You read on your own for the 30 minute SSR time at the start of each day. You do not need consistent redirection or reminders to do this. You do not distract others or avoid reading. You do not need to be told to read. I can select my own texts You can go to the library and choose texts youwould like to read. You are able to choose books you want to finish and aren’t constantly quitting on books and needing to return to the library without finishing.
8 TH GRADE STUDENTS WHO MEET ALL FIVE STANDARDS IN ONE QUARTER WILL NO LONGER NEED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE AR PROGRAM. YOU WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE READING TIME BUT WILL NO LONGER NEED TO TAKE AR QUIZZES OR DOCUMENT READING!!!!!
