In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

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

DURHAM, NC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- 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. To learn more about Virginia's focus on math achievement and The Quantile Framework please visit:
www.doe.virginia.gov/testing/scoring/quantile.

"I applaud Virginia's exceptional dedication to improving education," stated Malbert Smith III, Ph.D., President and co-founder of MetaMetrics, "as they deliver measures to their students that facilitate differentiated instruction and monitor growth. With their adoption of The Quantile Framework and continued use of Lexile measures, Virginia provides numerous means for math and reading growth. By receiving Quantile and Lexile measures on their SOL score reports, students can access a wealth of free, web-based tools such as Math@Home and the popular 'Find a Book.'"

Virginia's state assessment program began reporting Lexile measures during the 2008-2009 school year. The Lexile Framework, recognized globally as the most widely used reading metric, evaluates reading ability and growth based on actual assessment results, rather than generalized age or grade levels. Lexile measures help teachers, librarians and parents find books, articles and other resources within a reader's recommended Lexile range: 100L below to 50L above his or her Lexile measure. Reading materials within this optimal Lexile range will challenge the individual's reading ability, while still maintaining interest and supporting new learning.

The Quantile Framework for Mathematics is a unique measurement system that uses a common scale and metric to assess a student's mathematical achievement level and the difficulty of specific skills and concepts. The Quantile Framework describes a student's ability to solve mathematical problems and the demand of the skills and concepts typically taught in kindergarten mathematics through Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry and Pre-calculus. Quantile measures take the guesswork out of instruction by describing which mathematical skills and concepts the student has learned and is ready to learn. Quantile measures improve mathematics teaching and learning by targeting instruction and monitoring student growth toward proficiency standards and the mathematical demands of college and careers.
