Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children (MMTIC®) Initiative at A.B. Combs Leadership Magnet Elementary

Since 2018, the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation (FI), Center for Applications of Psychological Type (CAPT) and the Myers & Briggs Foundation, and A.B. Combs Leadership Magnet Elementary School (Combs) have engaged in a research-practice partnership (RPP) to create a new model for application of the MMTIC® instrument (Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children®) to improve instruction and student’s social, emotional and academic decision-making in public schools in Wake County, North Carolina. RPPs are enduring reciprocal collaborations between practitioners and researchers that are designed to investigate shared problems of practice and solutions for improving outcomes over time (Coburn, Penuel, & Geil, 2013). Key tenets of RPPs include acknowledgement of each collaborator (i.e., researchers, administrators and teachers) as an equal contributor to the process and iterative engagement between all collaborators to refine data collection, analysis and interpretation (Tseng, Easton, & Supplee, 2017).
