I created this Accelerated Reading Log (AR), so as Teacher and student we can set an AR goal for the week. Each individual student sets a personal goal (with much direction on my part) for the week based on the percent of questions correct (at the least 85%) not just points earned. This requires more focus on comprehension and not just reading to earn points.
I found that requiring my students to write down each book title, the book level, the percent correct (on AR tests), points earned, their initials, and my initials makes the document official.
At the end of each week, I generate an AR report and compare their log to my report. I highlight all the books read, and tests taken for the week. If they attained their weekly goal, rewards are given. If not, goals are adjusted.
