Introduction
When should I use school norms, and when should I use student norms?

Information
When evaluating individual students, use the student norms. When evaluating groups of students, grades, or schools then you should use the school norms.

For example, if you are a teacher and you look at your class's mean RIT, and you want to determine what percentile rank your class is at based on this mean RIT, you would use the school norms to determine the percentile.

For additional information, see the 2015 Norms Study, Page 5, section 1.2.4, entitled Student vs. School Norms.
