What to Do With a Quantile Measure
As more and more states and test developers align their assessments with the Quantile Framework® for Mathematics, it’s getting more likely that your child has received one or more Quantile measures each year.
Having a Quantile measure for your child opens up a world of possibilities. Because a student Quantile measure tells you which skills and concepts your child is comfortable with, you can also match your child with new skills and concepts and follow their progress.
Matching Your Child To Math Concepts That Make Sense
Quantile measures are so much more than a math score because they also measure math skills and concepts. A Quantile Skill and Concept (QSC) measure helps teachers and parents target instruction by matching these two measures.
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 their Quantile measure. Learn more about matching your child to the optimal skills and concepts.
You can also use Quantile measures to help chart your child’s mathematics growth and determine their readiness for math required in college and the workplace. The Quantile® Growth Planner helps you see where your child is on the path to college and career readiness as well as identify areas where they need to focus.
