So How Do They Assign Points? By The Number Of Pages?

In her essay, Reading by the Numbers, in the August 27th New York Times Book Review,Susan Straight describes the...mmm...lop-sidedness?...of the Accelerated Reader point system.

I was feeling badly because my own books have only single digit AR points. Then I remembered that Straight says that Hamlet only gets a 7. One of my books did that well, and three did better. I beat Shakespeare!

The link came from The Spectacle.
