Our Research Continues

From when we were founded 30 years ago to today, research — both internal and external — is in our DNA at MetaMetrics.

While we continue to work with education companies, publishers and state departments of education to incorporate Lexile and Quantile measures into their products and assessments, we have a dynamic research pipeline. On both the math and reading side, we are working on building personalized learning platforms based upon the principles of deliberate practice and sound psychometric theory. In the math domain, we are examining the postsecondary mathematical demands of college and careers. This information will be used to help students and educators monitor if they are on track for success in school, college and careers.
