How do I use AR BookGuide to create labels for books that I
now have access to Accelerated Reader quizzes for since switching from an
Accelerated Reader service subscription to an Accelerated Reader Enterprise
If you recently switched from an Accelerated Reader service
subscription to an Accelerated Reader Enterprise subscription, you now have
access to all Accelerated Reader quizzes. If you label your books with
Accelerated Reader quiz information, any books in your school library that have
a matching Accelerated Reader quiz that you did not previously own an
Accelerated Reader quiz for will need to be labeled. If you already labeled the
books that you previously purchased quizzes for, there is no need to print
labels for all books, only those titles that you gained access to with
Accelerated Reader Enterprise.
Follow the steps
below to use AR BookGuide to create Accelerated Reader book labels for quizzes
that you did not previously own but now have access to with Accelerated Reader
1) Import your library’s MARC record into AR
BookGuide to mark the books that you own. If you have already imported a
current MARC record into AR BookGuide, you can skip this step. Refer to the AR
BookGuide Software Manual for steps to import a MARC record file.
2) If you have not done so already, mark the
Accelerated Reader quizzes that you previously purchased while using a service
subscription as owned in AR BookGuide. There are two ways to do this:
recently switched to Renaissance Place from the Desktop Accelerated Reader
application (version 5.x or 6.x) and you still have your Desktop application
data, create an AR BookGuide export file containing your quiz information and
import it into AR BookGuide to mark the quizzes that you own. Refer to the AR
BookGuide Software Manual for steps to create and import an Accelerated Reader
5.x to 6.x AR BookGuide export file.
have been using Renaissance Place and just recently switched from an
Accelerated Reader service subscription to an Enterprise subscription, contact
Renaissance Learning Customer Support. To contact customer support, call
800-338-4204 or e-mail email@example.com. We will mark your owned quizzes in AR
BookGuide based on our quiz purchase records.
Note: If you
indirectly purchased any quizzes from book publishers, we may not have a
complete record of all owned quizzes.
you have marked your own quizzes in AR BookGuide or had Renaissance Learning
mark the quizzes for you, create a new Book List in AR BookGuide to add all titles that you
have matching books for but did not previously own quizzes for. To create a new
Book List, log in to AR BookGuide and go to “List Management”. Click on “Create
List”. Provide a name for your list and click on the [Save] button.
4) Use the advanced search feature
to search by book and quiz ownership status. Select have “Reading Practice”
(No) and have “Book” (Yes). The results should show only those new quizzes that
are now available with AR Enterprise that match the books that you own. Be sure
that the name of your new list appears in the drop down menu above your search
results and click on the link to “Add All Results to List”.
5) Generate a Book Label Report
from the results in your Book List and print labels. To access the Book Label
Report, click on “View List” and then click on the “Book Labels” link. If you
are having difficulties getting the text to align correctly on your labels, see
Knowledge Base article # 4214766.
Accelerated Reader Enterprise customer, after you create your book labels,
there is no longer any reason to have your owned quiz titles marked in AR
BookGuide because you have access to all Accelerated Reader quizzes. If you
would like your Accelerated Reader quiz ownership status removed after creating
labels, please contact Renaissance Learning Customer Support. To contact customer support, call
800-338-4204 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also since you now have access to all Accelerated Reader
quizzes, as you search for quizzes in AR BookGuide going forward, you will want
to search for all available quizzes regardless of quiz ownership status. For
example, If you are looking for a list of Accelerated Reader quizzes that are
available to you that you own books for, select have “Reading Practice” (Any)
and have “Book” (Yes). Selecting have (Any) will display search results for all
quizzes regardless of whether or not they are marked as owned.
