Voyager Adds Quantile Framework to Vmath
Voyager Expanded Learning has added the Quantile Framework for Mathematics from MetaMetrics to its Vmath Texas Edition math intervention program.
The Quantile Framework for Mathematics is a system designed to predict what mathematical concepts students are ready to learn based on assessments of student abilities using a developmental scale. According to MetaMetrics, "Texas students will take the Quantile-based assessments in Vmath four times each year, allowing teachers to monitor student progress in the program toward grade-level learning goals. Teachers will use the assessment results to analyze students' mathematics achievement and determine the appropriate beginning Vmath lesson to meet their learning needs."
Vmath itself is a math intervention program written for the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards for grades 3 through 8. More information can be found at the links below.
