abstract = {The Quadrature Discretization Method (QDM) is employed in the solution of several one-dimensional Schrodinger equations that have received considerable attention in the literature. The QDM is based on the discretization of the wave function on a grid of points that coincide with the points of a quadrature. The quadrature is based on a set of non-classical polynomials orthogonal with respect to a weight function. For a certain class of problems with potentials of the form that occur in supersymmetric quantum mechanics, the ground state wavefunction is known. In the present paper, the weight functions that are used are related to the ground state wavefunctions if known, or some approximate form. The eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of four different potential functions discussed extensively in the literature are calculated and the results are compared with published values.},
