What are local norms?

1 Answer(s) Available
Answer # 1 #

Local norms allow for within-group comparisons. Students are compared against students who share similar characteristics such as grade, race or school attended, rather than against the student body as a whole. Local norms are calculated using students with similar backgrounds from one or more districts in a region.
