Renaissance Home Connect - AR Testing
Parents, here is another opportunity to monitor your child’s progress in Accelerated Reader (AR). Here’s how: Your student uses a software program called Renaissance Place at school. This program has a special feature called Renaissance Home Connect, which you can access outside of school from any computer with an Internet connection. Renaissance Home Connect is fun and easy to use. It allows the teacher, you and your child to share information about your child’s progress in Accelerated Reader. Ask your child for his/her username. The password is your child’s Student ID number. Students may test on any book within their ZPD level that is from the Grant library, public library or personal book purchased by their guardian/parent. Log in Renaissance Home Connect
