Differentiating Math Instruction

Scholastic’s Math Hub has a great post on using the Quantile Framework to differentiate math instruction.  Utilizing the Quantile Framework allows teachers to identify prerequisite math skills that students may need in order to be successful with a new math skill or concept and to then target students at the appropriate level:

The Quantile Framework measures student mathematical ability, the curriculum and teaching materials on the same developmental scale. Quantile measures help teachers determine which skills and concepts a student is ready to learn and those that will require more instruction. Educators can then use this information to better focus instruction to incorporate the necessary prerequisite skills that may be missing and accurately forecast understanding.

Math Hub does a nice job of summarizing the purpose of the benefits of the Quantile Framework.  Take a look.
