DURHAM, N.C. (PRWEB) June 23, 2020
MetaMetrics®, developer of the Lexile® Framework for Reading, today announced a new partnership with Beable, the new multi-dimensional system that connects literacy to life-readiness and closes the literacy and the opportunity gap. The partnership with MetaMetrics enables districts to use a computer-adaptive placement assessment as the basis for a customized instructional plan for each student.
Beable is a first-of-its-kind system that combines social-emotional growth with literacy acceleration in core content areas, career exposure and ACT/SAT prep. By doing so, Beable takes a giant step forward to close the literacy and opportunity gap.
Within Beable, the Lexile reading measure is administered in both English and Spanish to supports learning recommendations for each student that are unique to that child. The Lexile-linked assessment is among several the Beable system uses, including a RIASEC career aptitude test and a survey of students’ hobbies and interests, to enable uniquely tailored paths for each student based on academic, career and personal goals.
Beable brings a new level of literacy and life-ready success to K-12 students and educators, leveraging next-generation technology to deliver multi-dimensional solutions based on the whole child.
“We have worked together with Saki Dodelson and her team for more than a decade to improve literacy for millions of students,” said Malbert Smith, CEO, president and co-founder of MetaMetrics. “We look forward to collaborating with the Beable team to continue Saki’s quest to provide a multi-dimensional approach to improving literacy, closing the gap and enabling life-readiness for the whole child.”
“Our long history with MetaMetrics affirms they are the gold standard for their adaptive reading assessments,” said Saki Dodelson, founder and CEO of Beable. “We are continuing to work with the MetaMetrics team to further innovate and expand our offerings to help millions of kids improve their lives.”
The full Beable Life-Ready Literacy System is available for the 2020/21 school year for middle school and high school, followed closely by its elementary school offering. A special Summer FastStart remote learning program is available to help districts identify and bridge student gaps. Learn more about Beable and request a product demonstration here.
