Executive Summary
The purpose of this evaluation is to examine the Accelerated Reader, better known as AR. Eachschool system in Georgia is more than likely familiar with the program. Each book from theschool library is worth a certain amount of points. At certain intervals during the year theteachers set point goals for the students in his/her classroom. The students then take tests oneach book read and are awarded the appropriate points assigned to the book and quiz. Based onthis award system, students are eligible to increase the level of difficulty by moving to a higher  book level.The Accelerated Reader program varies in each school. Some schools offer an incentive program so that students have the drive to succeed. For example, Howard Middle School inMacon, Georgia started an incentive program this school year called Reading around the World.For every ten books a student reads, he/she gets to take a “trip” around the world. Every nineweeks, there is a celebration where the students get to learn about a country’s culture, eating their food, learning their language, and having guest speakers from that country to help celebrate their success.What we are focusing on is to see if there is a correlation between the numbers of students participating in the Accelerated Reader program when there is an incentive program in place.
Question: Does an incentive program help increase the number of participants in theAccelerated Reader program?
