AR at Home

WC Elementary

West Central Elementary School is proud to announce the arrival of:  Accelerated Reader At Home

Accelerated reader is a comprehension and vocabulary based computer program that tests the children’s knowledge of books read. Your child picks a book at his/her own level and reads it at his/her own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer. By passing the quiz it’s an indication that your child understood what was read. As a result, he/she will earn points to reach their goal which is set by his/her teacher. 

It is crucial during our time at home that your child reads daily to build fluency and comprehension.

How to login from home to take a test:

  1. Go to: https://global-zone08.renaissance-go.com/welcomeportal/182921

  2. Click on “I’m a Student”

  3. Type in your username and password and then press enter

Username: First letter of first name and first 4 letters of last name

Password: First and last initials

*If a student has a sibling in district then his/her username may also contain a number


Example:  John Smith-  Username: jsmit      Password: js       


  1. Now you are ready to search for the book by title, author, or quiz number by typing in the blank box


Note: We find that most books are in the AR system, but this is not true for every single book. When choosing books from home or online libraries, you are able to go to arbookfind.com to determine if the books have an AR test available. Your child will not be able to take tests for books which are not in the system.
