What is available?

 

Accelerated Reader Student App

 

The AR Student App is available for students who are using Accelerated Reader on the Renaissance Place platform hosted by Renaissance Learning. The devices that are supported at this time are Apple’s iPad (including the iPad Mini), iPhone, and iPod touch running iOS 5.0 and higher.  The previous version of the AR Student App, version 1.2.3, will continue to function on devices running iOS 4.0.  The AR Student App can be downloaded from iTunes or the App Store. See https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/accelerated-reader/id440734561?mt=8 for more information.

 

New Accelerated Reader Student interface

 

AR has a new student interface with a completely redesigned look. The new interface is much more intuitive and engaging, and offers improved accessibility to quizzes, vocabulary words, and quiz results. Students can access the new interface in a browser on supported computers as well as on tablets 7 inches or greater.

 

New Accelerated Math Student interface

 

Accelerated Math Enterprise has a new online student program. Students can now use a web browser to complete online assignments or score printed assignments, access instructional resources such as worked examples and math glossary terms linked to the problems they are working, and view their progress towards personal goals. The student program is accessible through Renaissance Place or Renaissance Home Connect (although tests must still be scored at school) in a browser on supported computers as well as on tablets 7 inches or greater. If students are scoring printed Accelerated Math practices, they will also need a PDF reader to view/print the new practice, preferably Adobe Reader 9 or later.

 

Accelerated Reader Widget

 

The K12Activity App to display Accelerated Reader data is designed for the iPod touch and iPhone, and can be used to display up-to-date information on the books students are reading. Although the Widget was not specifically designed for the iPad, it can be accessed on that device; the screen is a larger version of what the user would see on the iPod touch and iPhone. The K12Activity App can be downloaded from iTunes or the App Store.

 

Home Connect

 

Students are now able to log in to Home Connect on iPads as well as other tablets 7 inches or greater. Students can view their reading and math practice, work in MathFacts in a Flash, score Accelerated Math practices and exercises (if the class preference is set to allow this type of activity), and view progress towards goals. If students are scoring printed Accelerated Math practices, they will also need a PDF reader to view/print the new practice, preferably Adobe Reader 9 or later.

 

MathFacts in a Flash

 

Students are now able to use MathFacts in a Flash on tablets 7 inches or greater through Renaissance Place or Renaissance Home Connect. Adobe Flash Player is no longer required.

 

STAR App for iPad

 

The STAR App is now available for students who are using a STAR product on the Renaissance Place platform hosted by Renaissance Learning. Students can now take STAR Reading, STAR Math, STAR Early Literacy, and STAR Reading Spanish tests on iPads (including the iPad Mini) running iOS 5.0 and higher. The STAR App can be downloaded from iTunes or the App Store. See https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/star/id632254791?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 for more information.

 

Renaissance Place

 

Although Renaissance Place is not currently supported on mobile devices for personnel and parent users, we are working toward making Renaissance Place compatible with tablets 7” or greater. While we do not have a specific timeline on full compatibility, we are continuing to make periodic changes to Renaissance Place to improve functionality. In the meantime, personnel users may be able to access their site through the browser on a tablet but the design has not been optimized for tablets or mobile devices and the software may behave or look different.

 

Not yet supported

 

At this time English in a Flash and the STAR applications are not supported for student use on mobile devices (with the exception of the STAR App for iPads).

 

We are exploring the option of creating additional apps for iOS devices as well as other mobile devices and welcome your suggestions.
