What is a good Quantile score?

What is a good Quantile score?

For optimal learning and growth, a student should practice mathematics within a Quantile range of 50Q above and 50Q below his or her Quantile measure.

What is a high Quantile score?

A Quantile measure indicates how well a student understands mathematical concepts and skills at his or her grade level. For example, a higher Quantile measure within a specific grade range indicates that a student probably has very few problems with grade-level material (textbooks and assignments) in school.

What is the lowest Quantile score?

Grade 7 8.0Q
Grade 8 7.4Q
Grade 9 6.8Q

What is a quantile range?

For example, if q = 0.20, then the q quantile range is the difference between the 80th and 20th quantiles of the data. The interquartile range is a special case of the q quantile range with q = 0.25. The q quantile range is used as a robust measure of scale.

What is quantile scale?

Quantiles are defined, in statistics, as separating a population into intervals of similar sizes (the 10% poorest, the 50% tallest, the 1% richest…); a quantile scale is essentially defined by its domain, a fixed set of values — when applied to a new value, it will then compute its ranking with respect to the initial …

Is 1248 a good Lexile score?

For 10th-graders, a score of 1080L to 1260L is proficient and 1265L and above is advanced. For 11th- and 12th-graders, a score between 1185L and 1385L is proficient and a score of 1390L and above is advanced. A minimum reading level of 1385L is considered to be college- and career-ready.

What is a good Lexile score for a 7th grader?

Reading Status Norms (RIT Values and Lexile Levels)
Grade Beginning-of-Year Lexile Range
6 211.6 900-950
7 215.4 975-1025
8 219.0 1050-1075

What’s a good Lexile score for a 12th grader?

To begin, Lexile score ranges vary depending on grade level. A proficient first grader would score between 200L and 300L, while an adequate reader in the 12th grade would earn a score in the range of 1060L and 1320L.

What is the quantile framework for mathematics?

The Quantile Framework for Mathematics evaluates the difficulty of mathematical skills and concepts as well as a student’s ability to learn new mathematical concepts. Each of these measures are on a single scale so that the skill demand and student ability can be matched for targeting instruction.

Where do students get a quantile® measure?

Students get a Quantile® measure from a mathematics state test or another standardized test. See our national student norms data at for grade level comparisons. Compare Quantile measures with grade levels using Quantile® Grade Level Charts.

What is the difference between the Lexile and quantile framework?

The Lexile Framework links student reading ability with texts that are appropriately challenging. The Quantile Framework works similarly for mathematics, matching student capacity to the difficulty level of math.

How are quantquantile measures aligned with state performance standards?

Quantile measures can be aligned with state performance standards to show a student’s math ability as it relates to a state’s grade-level expectations. The typical or mid-point of student norms is not the same as achieving the grade-level performance standard.
