Istation invites your school to take part in a special study!
Istation is currently working with MetaMetrics® to link the ISIP™ Comprehension ability score with The Lexile® Framework for Reading.
MetaMetrics is an educational research and development organization located in North Carolina. Its best-known and most widely used product is the Lexile Framework, which is used in the process of matching readers with books.
So how will this help you? Linking to the Lexile scale provides a mechanism for matching each student with texts that are at or near his or her reading level (with a 75% forecasted comprehension rate) rather than using a grade-based list that may or may not reflect the true reading ability of all the students in the grade. This study will allow Istation to provide student Lexile measures based on performance on the comprehension subtests of our ISIP Assessments.
The study will take place September 23 through October 11, 2013. We need students in grades 1-4, 6, and 8 to participate. Students will take their normal monthly ISIP Assessment and one Lexile linking test within two weeks of each other.
All interested in participating, please contact your Istation account executive or call 1-866-833-7323, extension 4499.
We look forward to working with you and your students on this important project!
