Hold the Applause!: Do Accelerated Reader (TM) and Electronic Bookshelf (TM) Send the Right Message?
Carter, Betty
School Library Journal, v42 n10 p22-25 Oct 1996
Although the computerized reading management programs, Accelerated Reader and Electronic Bookshelf, increase library circulation and standardized test scores, they have drawbacks. Both programs devalue reading, diminish motivation, limit title choice, restrict materials selection and collection development, discourage independent selection of books, emphasize testing rather than needs, and fail to make the best use of school resources.
