Think Through Math Integrates Quantile Benchmark Assessments That Measure Students’ Learning Growth

Think Through Learning, creator of Think Through Math (TTM), has announced that it has incorporated high quality benchmark assessments within TTM. The benchmarks use the Quantile Framework for Mathematics from MetaMetrics to provide an objective measure of each student’s ability level and readiness to learn new math skills and concepts. The benchmarks can be used in place of expensive third party assessments and are included free in the price of TTM. Seamlessly integrated into the flow of TTM lessons, they are easy to use and they eliminate the time consuming and cumbersome process of importing testing data from other systems. The embedded benchmarks accurately measure each student’s learning gain across the school year, and can be viewed by educators on their class, school and district level TTM dashboards.

MetaMetrics' Quantile Framework for Mathematics is a scientific scale that measures a student’s math achievement level and indicates which topics a student is ready to learn next. Teachers can quickly determine if students are on track to pass year-end assessments, and alter their learning trajectories if need be. Teachers can either customize a lesson path precisely tailored to a student’s Quantile ability level or let the TTM adaptive system automatically serve up the right next lesson, whichever they prefer.
