What to Do With Quantile Measures
A growing number of states and test companies are aligning their assessments with the Quantile Framework for Mathematics. When your students receive Quantile measures, you suddenly have access to a wealth of information and free tools to accelerate students’ proficiency in math.
Because student Quantile measures tell you which skills and concepts your students are comfortable with, you can personalize learning for those students and follow their progress.
Matching Students To Math Concepts
We’ve defined almost 500 mathematics skills and/or concepts, and assigned each one of these concepts with a measure that shows how difficult one skill is in relation to the others.
These Quantile Skill and Concept (QSC) measures help you target instruction. They are available in nearly 600 textbooks, 64,000 lessons and more than 3,100 downloadable resources.
As the difficulty or demand of the skill increases, so does the Quantile measure. The difference between your child’s Quantile measure and the QSC measure predicts how difficult that skill or concept may be for a child to learn. For optimal learning and growth, a child should practice mathematics within a Quantile range of 50Q above and 50Q below his or her Quantile measure.

You can also use Quantile measures to help chart student mathematics growth and determine their readiness for math required in college and the workplace. The Quantile® Growth Planner shows where students are on the path to college and career readiness as well as identify areas where they need to focus.
