Do you want to contribute to the growing corpus of research on Lexile® measures?

As a company with a rich history and origin in measurement and research, MetaMetrics® strives to support researchers studying Lexile measure application in a variety of settings. It provides free access to resources such as the Lexile Titles Database® that provides Lexile measures for nearly 300,000 books. Researchers are also welcome to utilise the Lexile Analyzer®, which estimates the text complexity of a piece of text. For those interested in forecasting learner reading performance, the Lexile Growth Planner® is also made available to assist with research. As a result of MetaMetrics’ commitment to pioneering research in reading, many of its findings are cited in external research.

Our Research Continues

Substantial investment has been made to create a team with impressive academic rigor, with over half of the MetaMetrics team in roles as psychometricians, data scientists and researchers. The important part that research plays in the company’s operation can be seen through the success of its staff. More than half of the members of their team hold doctorate and graduate degrees from some of the most prestigious universities in the world, including Duke University, Princeton University, Stanford University and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

MetaMetrics works with education companies, publishers and governments to incorporate Lexile measures into their products and assessments, but the organisation also has a dynamic research pipeline. In addition, the academic research community examines and supports the validity of the organisation’s metrics. There are hundreds of independent research studies using Lexile measures as the methodology to gauge text complexity or reading comprehension.
