Introduction
Are 11th and 12th grade norms available?

Information
Currently, status norms (percentiles) are available for grades 11 and 12 in some subjects, but not all. Read on for more information.

 
11th grade:

  • Status norms (percentiles) are available for:
    • Math (K-12 General)
    • Reading
    • Language usage
  • Growth norms are available for:
    • Math (K-12 General)
    • Reading
    • Language usage
  • Neither status nor growth norms are available for science.

 
12th grade:

  • Status norms (percentiles) are available for:
    • Math (K-12 General)
    • Reading
  • Growth norms are available for:
    • Math (K-12 General)
    • Reading
  • Neither status nor growth norms are available for science or language usage.

 

Why are norms not available in these grades for some subjects?

This is because insufficient numbers of students in these grades and subjects tested to permit creation of a robust, representative sample. When we have reason to believe that a norm would not be representative of the U.S. school-age population and their performance or growth distribution, we chose not to report a norm, rather than report a norm that might be inaccurate or misleading.
