Istation is pleased to announce The Morgridge International Reading Center (MIRC) at the University of Central Florida will extend its research partnership with Istation Reading for the 2016–2017 school year!
The partnership, which began in the 2014-2015 school year, will continue to support a statewide reading performance study among Florida students in grades pre-K through 5. Plus, new for this year, the project will include free and unlimited access to Istation’s Reading en Español program.
Participation by districts and schools in the MIRC-Istation project is voluntary and open to all Florida public school students in grades pre-K through 5 and state-assessed Florida charter school students up to a maximum of 600,000 students. Of course, no identifying student information will be provided to MIRC, and all data analyses will be performed without identifying information from participating students, schools or districts.
Commenting on our continued partnership, Dr. Sandra Robinson, Executive Director of the Morgridge International Reading Center and the Toni Jennings Exceptional Education Institute at the University of Central Florida said, “I am excited about continuing our research with Istation in Florida. With the large number of students enrolled in the program, we are confident that this important research will help to improve student achievement and support teachers in their valuable work.”
