These courses provide meaningful instruction that helps educators learn how to leverage the Quantile or Lexile framework to make data-driven decisions that inform classroom instruction. They include direct instruction, knowledge checks, summative assessments, and performance tasks.

Courses are divided into learning modules. As educators progress through the modules, they will gain an understanding of the Lexile or Quantile Framework as well as how to most effectively use the tools available on the Lexile & Quantile Hub. When an educator completes a module of the Lexile or Quantile Certification Course, they will earn a micro-credential.

At the end of the course, an educator will be a certified Quantile or Lexile educator. They'll be experts who can communicate the significance of measures to parents and share resources and best practices for classroom instruction with peers.
