This is accessible via your school’s Renaissance Place UL and then selecting the Star Reading icon/tile.

Sourcing Reading Content

One of the key components of assessing students, is know where they are placed regarding literacy and numeracy skills.  For example, once a student completes a Star Reading Assessment, they are given a Reading Range (ZPD), which guides them to what book levels to read.

Accelerated Reader Reading Content

To know what books are in the students Reading Range, use Book Finder to search for the book titles or Reading Range to find books that match student’s interests and abilities.


Accelerated Reader Book Finder –

Accelerated Reader BookFinder is a free web-based search tool that helps parents/guardians and students search for appropriate Accelerated Reader books. Accelerated Reader BookFinder contains all of the book and quiz titles that are available for Accelerated Reader.

myON Reading Content

Students will also be able to search for books in myON. Students (and teachers) have several filters that can be used to help find the right book – which includes Lexile and ATOS levels, or via categories such as History or Science.
