Founded in 1984, MetaMetrics® is an education research organisation that develops scientific measures of academic achievement—specific to literacy and mathematics—that link assessment results with real-world instruction and materials to improve learner outcomes. The organisation’s flagship product is the Lexile Framework for Reading, an objective way to measure reading ability and text complexity on the same scale. Over the years, their dedicated team of psychometricians, education specialists and engineers have expanded the tools and services that improve reading instruction and assessment and power today’s best education products. The organisation’s success is grounded in providing reliable solutions and building long-lasting partnerships in government, publishing, ed tech and academia.

Today, Lexile® measures are recognised around the world as the standard for matching students with texts. More than half of American students and learners in over 180 countries receive Lexile measures every year. Leading publishers across the world provide Lexile measures. In turn, a learner who has a Lexile measure can be matched with the more than 100 million articles, books and websites that have Lexile text measures, putting them on the path to success in their school, university and careers.
