This report was created by Renaissance Learning, a cloud-based assessment, teaching, and learning solutions. The gathered data comes from its Accelerated Reader-hosted database, utilized in more than 31,600 primary and secondary schools last year. The database includes book-reading records for more than 9.8 million students, who read more than 330 million books.
I am always weary of these reports, coming from companies with clear economic interest in the field. But in this case, it is just plain fun. Please, go to their interactive tool and check for the most popular book in the state of New York for grade 11 (interestingly they did not have enough information to produce something for grade 12). What do you think of the result?
