Middle and High School Educators Needed For Reading Research Survey

Are you an educator who works with struggling readers in middle school or high school? Are some of your students reading at levels three years or more below what is typical for students at their grade level? We are interested in hearing from you! Please complete our online survey and participate in our research program.

We are currently conducting research designed to increase our understanding of how educators use reading materials intended to support struggling readers. This survey is just one component of our work. It is intended for educators who work primarily with middle and high school students. We are asking for your responses to these questions for two reasons—to help us understand better what various school systems and programs are doing in this area, and also to identify what appears to be “working well.”

Research Grants Offered to Educational Institutions or Researchers that Evaluate and/or Interpret EFL Reading Comprehension

In partnership with the British Council Assessment Research Group, we invite applications for research which will contribute to our understanding of the construct of EFL reading comprehension and reading comprehension assessment.

The aim of the grants is to build insights into the interaction between features of text and reading tasks that impact comprehension and can inform teaching, learning, assessment and evaluation. These grants will support researchers around the world so they can conduct and disseminate the highest quality research. Two areas of interest have been identified for these grants, reading comprehension and growth in reading comprehension over time.
