# 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 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 Hub.Lexile.com/ 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.
