This is such an exciting app for users who are already familiar with the Accelerated Reader (AR) program! Chances are, your students are already quite adept at taking AR quizzes on a traditional computer. But now they also have the option of doing so on the iPad and/or iPod Touch.
Please note that your students need to already have access to Accelerated Reader - a paid service. Visit http://www.renlearn.com/ar/ for more information.
The AR app is actually simpler than the traditional computer interface. It serves as a great alternative. But it would be beneficial if students already knew how to log in and search for quizzes the traditional way. Be sure to provide students and/or parents with your school's Renaissance Place URL if you want them to access AR through iPads and/or iPod Touches (or even iPhones) away from the school.
