DURHAM, N.C. & SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – August 24, 2022 – As schools face significant unfinished learning resulting from the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, MetaMetrics®, developer of the Lexile® and Quantile® Frameworks, and Imagine Learning, the largest provider of digital curriculum solutions in the United States, today announced an expansion of their long-term partnership.
Beginning in the 2022-23 school year, Imagine MyPath® assessments will report National Percentile Ranks (NPR) for Lexile and Quantile measures, supporting K-12 students on their pathway to grade-level success. This will allow teachers and parents to see how students performed in comparison to other students in the same grade in reading and math, providing them with a metric to guide future learning and monitor student progress. For nearly a decade, other Imagine Learning assessments have reported Lexile and Quantile measures.
“Imagine Learning’s digital curriculum solutions include high-quality assessments designed to identify a personalized learning path that meets each student where they are and helps all students reach their potential,” said Jeff Pendleton, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Supplemental and Intervention at Imagine Learning. “Our longstanding partnership with MetaMetrics supports educators in using Lexile and Quantile measures to further personalize classroom instruction.”
Imagine MyPath gives every K–12 student a pathway to grade-level success with a personalized and adaptive program in reading and math. As students move from targeted intervention to supplemental grade-level practice and enrichment, Imagine MyPath continues to deliver adaptive lessons propelling them forward. Imagine MyPath empowers teachers with the data and point-of-use resources that allow them to quickly get their students back on track.
“Differentiated instruction allows teachers to ensure that all students receive instruction that is tailored to their individual needs, strengths and interests,” said Malbert Smith, CEO and co-founder of MetaMetrics. “By reporting Lexile and Quantile measures, Imagine MyPath will provide educators with even more actionable data to accelerate learning.”
