The Quantile Framework measures mathematics achievement and the difficulty of mathematical skills and problems on the same developmental scale. Quantile measures inform instruction by identifying the skills a student has learned, those that require instruction, and new skills the student is ready to learn. Quantiles enable educators to forecast understanding, target instruction, and monitor growth. The Quantile Framework ranges from 0Q and below to above 1700Q, and includes content taught in kindergarten through twelfth grade.
Using Quantiles, you can identify the skills a child has learned, as well as the skills he or she is likely to encounter next in school and may require extra help with. Each child should have already learned the skills below his or her Quantile measure.
Quantile measures do not translate specifically to grade levels. Within any classroom, students will have varying mathematical abilities. Quantiles help educators and parents track student growth in mathematics over time, regardless of grade level.
