The Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR) is a multidisciplinary research center at Florida State University. FCRR explores all aspects of reading research—basic research into literacy-related skills for typically developing readers and those who struggle, studies of effective prevention and intervention, and psychometric work on formative assessment.
The Center’s Four Part Mission:
- To conduct basic research on reading, reading growth, reading assessment, and reading instruction that will contribute to the scientific knowledge of reading and benefit students in Florida and throughout the nation.
- To disseminate information about research-based practices related to literacy instruction and assessment for children in pre-K through 12th grade.
- To conduct applied research that will have an immediate impact on policy and practices related to literacy instruction in Florida.
- To provide technical assistance to Florida’s schools and to the State Department of Education for the improvement of literacy outcomes in students from pre-K through 12th grade.
