Stories are required to be beta read for this challenge, and some writers don't have access to their own. As a beta reader, you proofread the entire story. You check for grammatical errors, spelling errors, and that the story makes sense. You'll be checking for things that the writer may have been too caught up to notice, or may have missed during their own edit.
Alpha readers are not required for this challenge. You'll be working with the author as they are working. You'll help with characterization, plot holes. You'll check backstory, offer suggestions, feedback, and let the author know when things don't make sense.
Cheerleaders are the awesome people that keep authors and artists going when writer's block hits, or when real life gets in the way. Sometimes, we wouldn't get any work finished if it wasn't for our cheerleaders.
