As State Education Agencies examine their accountability models in light of the recent authorization of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), addressing issues such as comparability and growth is becoming increasingly important. Since both The Lexile® Framework for Reading and The Quantile® Framework for Mathematics make use of common, scientific scales for measurement, they can provide unique insight into the issues of comparability and growth highlighted in ESSA. During this webinar:
-Learn the benefits of using a common, scientific scale to measure student ability in reading and mathematics.
-See a real world example of how Lexile® and Quantile® measures were used to interpret growth across multiple editions of a state's tests over a 20 year period.
-Hear how Lexile and Quantile measures can be used to help determine the effects of educational initiatives and policies on student achievement.
