Norm-referenced tests – Georgia law mandates that a nationally norm-referenced test, such as the ITBS, be administered annually to students in grades three, five, and eight. The purpose of a norm-referenced test is to obtain information about the performance of Georgia s students and compare it with that of students in a national sample. The results are used for evaluation, decision-making, and to guide instruction. Understanding the scores – The scores are reported in percentiles and show how students compare with other students across the nation. For example, if a student received a score of 66%, that means the student performed better than 66% of all the students in the nation of the same grade level who took the test.
