This is NOT your typical elementary-ish AR form. This form was created to be used by students who have taken an AR test, but did not pass it. This is a second chance form!
We believe that “Failure is NOT an option” at my middle school and I wholeheartedly agree!
However, when we moved from Reading Counts to Accelerated Reader a couple of years ago, the only concern I had with the program was the fact that students could only take a test once, unlike RC that allowed retakes. This inability to retake AR tests for a passing grade definitely went against our school policy.
Students who have read the book will be able to successfully complete this form AND it gives the teacher and parent a chance to review the vital literary elements contained in the book. If a student can complete all parts of this form, you’ll feel that student has definitely earned the grade. It also goes a long way in showing parents that you’re willing to help their child succeed instead of having to accept no points when they truly did spend time reading that book.
