Many test publishers have partnered with MetaMetrics to provide students with Quantile measures through their standardized assessment products.

Norm-Referenced Assessments

These assessments compare a student’s score with a similar group of students who have taken a comparable assessment.

Interim/Benchmark Assessments

These assessments are typically administered multiple times throughout the year and are used to evaluate where students are in their learning progress and determine whether they are on track to performing well on future assessments. Assessments of this type are also used to guide the instructional process.
