What is the Quantile Framework for Mathematics?
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.
The Quantile Framework measures two important aspects of learning - the learner and what is being learned. The Quantile Framework provides both a measure for students and a measure for skills and concepts. The student measure describes what the student is capable of understanding. The skill or concept measure describes the difficulty, or demand, in learning that skill or concept. Both measures are represented as a number followed by the letter Q (i.e. 640Q) on the Quantile Scale.
