A secondary purpose was to examine the gender differences based on their TN Ready test scores. The sample consisted of 79 now 4th grade students who were in the 3rd grade the year before. The students’ TN Ready test scores and AR scores were obtained and studied. The data were analyzed using a simple linear regression to predict TN Ready test scores based on AR scores. The results revealed a significant relationship. The students who scored high in AR scored high on TN Ready test. The independent- samples t-test comparing the mean scores of males and females on their TN Ready test scores was conducted. The results revealed that there is no significant difference between gender. The results suggest that the Accelerated Reader Program is a good tool for improving students’ achievement.
