Accelerated Reader, the largest single database of student book-reading behavior, tracks all aspects of student reading, including titles of books read, quiz scores, and book readability levels. The database contains records for more than 7.6 million K-12 students and is the source of What Kids Are Reading: The Book-Reading Habits of Students in American Schools. The world's largest study on reading trends, the annual report ranks the books students are reading by grade, gender, and reading levels. The 2013 report will be released this spring.
