Question
Which norms are used for mathematics end-of-course tests?

Answer
We use the mathematics norms to generate percentile rankings and growth projections from end-of-course mathematics tests such as Algebra I.

While we do have percentile rankings in the norms study for the end-of-course tests, those are a subset of the overall math norms and include only the test events in that particular test. They are not associated with any particular grade, but include all grade levels. Reports show status and growth norms based on the mathematics measurement scale as a whole, not just for a specific test. Using the same scale as the mathematics 2-5 and 6+ tests allows you to see the entire picture of a student's growth in mathematics year over year.

End-of-course means, standard deviations, and percentile tables can be found in the 2015 Norms Study, Appendix F. See MAP Growth: Where can I find the Norms Study and related documents?
