Categorizing the difference for a value between two dates

I have a dataset with an ID that occurs over time showing a percent complete changing. I was able to create a measure to get me the difference between two values based on dates selected on a slicer (a first and second date).  However I'm looking to create groupings like "Increase", "Decrease", "No Change" for the difference between the two. Is there a way to do this with measures or to create columns like these measures?
