Choosing Your Interests
The first time you log in, the Interest Inventory will open.
For each category on the page, choose the face that shows how interested you are in that category. When you finish, select Save at the top or bottom of the page.
For each category on the page, choose the circle that shows how interested you are in books in that category. The circle farthest to the left shows the least interest; the circle farthest to the right shows the most interest. When you finish, select Save at the top or bottom of the page.
Books in the student's recommended library are based on the student's level of interest in the eleven categories. Interests can always be changed after the initial inventory choices.
Finding Books in the Library
Select Library at the top of the myON window to start looking for books.
To find out how to use the library to look for books, read the sections below or watch this video:
Select Recommended to see books that are recommended to you based on your grade and your Interest Inventory. (Your Star score is also used if it is available.)
You might see a few book ideas at the top of the page. The book shown will change after a few seconds, but you can also use the arrows to see the next or last book.
You will see many categories of recommended books. These might include books in your ZPD (your reading range), top picks, books from special collections, books like ones you have already read, books popular with students in your grade, and books about the topics you chose as interesting to you. Choose the arrow in a row to see more books.
You can select the drop-down list in the "Because I Like" category of recommended books to choose a different category. You may also have a category that lets you choose to see recommended books in a specific language.
If you want to change the interests you choose, select Edit your interests above the recommended books.
To see options for a book, select the book cover. To open the book and start reading it, select the button. To record yourself reading the book, select the button. To see information about the book, select the button. To add the book to your favorites, select the button. For some books, you may also be able to choose to take an Accelerated Reader Quiz by selecting the button.
If you click the button, a window with information about the book will open.
