On Friday, March 1, students at Warsaw Christian School engaged in valuable reading practice and took part in setting a new national record in “Read the Most from Coast to Coast” challenge. Students contributed to a new national record of 4,409,622 Accelerated Reader quizzes passed in one day.
“Read The Most From Coast To Coast” is a national Renaissance Learning event that began last school-year. The event challenges students to break the record for the number of AR quizzes taken in one day. Last year’s record was set at 3,581,992 quizzes in the U.S. alone.
AR is a reading software program in which students read a book at the appropriate level and take a computerized quiz that measures their reading comprehension.
“Read The Most From Coast To Coast” enabled students to take part in a shared reading adventure while becoming better readers. Seeing real-time progress toward the goal was fun for students and they enjoyed being part of a national effort. They were really excited when they topped last year’s quiz-taking record.
