What is the Quantile Framework?


The Quantile Framework is a scale that describes a student's mathematical achievement and the difficulty of specific mathematical skills and concepts.  It works a lot like a ruler or thermometer, except rather than measuring length or temperature, the Quantile Framework measures readiness in mathematics learning.

 

Two measures. One scale.

Much like a coin, the Quantile Framework has two sides: a measure for students and a measure for skills and concepts.  The student measure describes what the student is capable of understanding.  The skill measure describes the difficulty, or demand, in learning that skill.  If the two measures are about the same, the student is probably ready for instruction on all skills that have that measure.
