Voyager Adds Quantile Framework to Vmath

##AUTHORSPLIT##<--->

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.
