Points are a measure of the amount of reading practice a student is getting. Every Reading Practice Quiz has a point value assigned to it based on the book level and the word count of the book (the book's difficulty and length). If you add or edit Teacher-Made Quizzes, the program calculates the possible points based on the book level and word count you enter for the quiz. Students earn points by passing Reading Practice Quizzes, including the Teacher-Made Quizzes. The points that a student earns on a quiz are based on the total point value of the quiz and the score the student received on it. Points are one of the criteria used by the program for determining when students have achieved the different reader certification levels.

If your school chooses to award points outside of Accelerated Reader RP or allows your students to use or "spend" their points, Accelerated Reader lets you monitor that activity in the software.
