Are there any plans to expand the program to include high school measures?
Our sights continue to be set on someday including high school measures unfortunately, there is nothing in the foreseeable future. That is because we are a grant funded research facility out of the University of Oregon and to date, we have not been able to secure a grant to do so. We continue to apply and hopefully one day we will receive one.
Something to note, once we do get a grant, the measures themselves will not be available for use until about 5 years out. The reason being the measures will need to be developed by educational specialists, reviewed, edited and aligned with focal points standards, and then piloted into some school districts. We then run an analysis of the results and cull out those measures that are determined to be either too easy or too hard so that all of the measures within a given skill set are of equal difficulty.
