AR and Lexile included in the library's online catalog!
You've asked for it, and it's finally here! Both Accelerated Reader and Lexile are tagged in the library's online catalog.
There are several ways to find what you are looking for either by searching or browsing.
(1). We've created a room that provides a link to the Accelerated Reader site, the Lexile Measures site, reading range level searches for both AR and Lexile, and at the bottom of the page there is a link that will bring you to the Destiny Quest, the online catalog for the Calcasieu Parish School Board.
So how do you get to this room? On the homepage of the library's online catalog, you'll find this image on the left that will direct you to Accelerated Reader/Lexile Room (screenshot of room below).
This room is set up to provide search results for entire ranges.
Example if you click on the link under AR for 01.-0.9 it will bring you to all 354 titles that fall within that range (as new titles are added with AR or Lexile quizzes they will automatically populate in the results). Of course after doing this search on a range of levels then you can narrow the search further by using the Accelerated Reader section located near the bottom of the catalog screen on the left hand side.
(2). Once you've searched for a title, keyword, or author, you'll retrieve search results. On the left hand side column near the bottom of the page, you'll see an Accelerated Reader section. Use the check-boxes to further limit your results.
NOTE: The room content isn’t a 100% complete list as there may be titles that have AR quizzes that haven’t yet had the AR information added to catalog. In that case, the AR or Lexile site in the room could be utilized to find other books that actually have AR quizzes or Lexile information.
If you have any questions, or need assistance, feel free to ask a staff member when you are visiting our locations, or contact nearby branch, or even use the chat feature on this site.
