The New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER) is New Zealand’s only national, independent educational research organisation. NZCER Press is the organisation’s publishing arm, publishing research-based assessment tools, journals, books and classroom resources, written by external authors and in-house researchers. Their publications are designed to meet the needs they identify across the education sector through their research work.
Rainbow Reading (and the US version: New Heights) is a program comprising audio-supported “hi-lo”, leveled books with audio-support provided on pre-recorded “magic” reading pens. The system is research-proven to significantly lift reading competence and confidence in beginning readers, including students learning English. miniRAINBOWS is a series for very young children to read and enjoy supported by the magic audiopen.
