As teachers around the country implement the new Common Core State Standards, WriteToLearn from Pearson now includes Pearson’s text complexity measure, the Reading Maturity Metric (RMM), offering 30 percent improvement over previous readability formulas. RMM has been added to the nearly 1,000 informational reading passages, along with Common Core State Standards’ text complexity grade bands.
