As an educational measurement and research organization, MetaMetrics is dedicated to “Bringing Meaning to Measurement.” We strongly believe that assessment and instruction could and should be connected. To strengthen that connection, MetaMetrics continues to explore questions about literacy and mathematics and to conduct research studies that provide empirical data to help answers those questions.
Currently, MetaMetrics is recruiting for our ongoing Early Reader research initiative. We are looking for first grade teachers who are willing and able to administer a short study to their students. The goals of this research include improving understanding of what makes text complex for the earliest readers and how early reading ability can be assessed reliably and fairly across different populations of students.

We hope you will consider volunteering to help with this important study.
