Which norms are used for high school math (formerly end-of-course) tests?

User norms are now available for the Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 tests, based on the first two years of test data. Although they are user norms and not nationally representative like the general MAP Growth norms, they provide contextual information about student performance in the fall, winter, and spring, and growth between fall and spring on these course-specific assessments. NWEA is working to integrate the course-specific math norms for Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 into the MAP Growth reporting system.

You can see the new course-specific user norms in the MAP Help Center online here: 2019 Norms for MAP Growth Course-Specific Tests in Algebra 1, 2, and Geometry Overview.

Are the new course-specific norms available on MAP reports?

Currently, MAP reports still show the general math norms. Until the MAP Growth reporting system is updated to reflect the new course-specific norms, we recommend disregarding the norms on the MAP Growth reports for students who took a course-specific math assessment. Instead, please reference the tables in the above document.
