Virginia Adopts The Quantile Framework for Mathematics to Bring Meaning to Measurement
Virginia Now Reporting Quantile and Lexile Measures to Improve Instruction and Monitor Growth
MetaMetrics®, developer of the widely adopted Lexile® Framework for Reading, is pleased to announce that the 2012-2013 school year marks Virginia's adoption of The Quantile® Framework for Mathematics. Already utilizing The Lexile Framework for Reading, the Virginia Standards of Learning tests (SOL) provide scores beneficial to their students through these mathematics and reading frameworks. Virginia is the seventh state to link their state assessments to both the Lexile and Quantile frameworks.
The Quantile Framework, which measures mathematics skills and concepts on a developmental scale, has been aligned to the Virginia SOL tests. Beginning this spring, students in grades three through eight will receive Quantile® measures from the SOL assessment. Virginia first reported Quantile measures in the fall of 2012 for high school students taking the following end-of-course assessments -- Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II.
