are not norm-referenced assessments; they are criterion-referenced assessments. This means their scores directly relate to specific skills that students are expected to master at particular grade levels. Their scores are also reported as grade-level scores. This makes them easier to understand for parents, teachers, and students.
Criterion-referenced means the test relates to some sort of established unit of measure.
Norm-referenced scores are used for comparing students to a larger pool of students or a percentage ranking compared to an average population. So a 25% would mean the student performed better than 24% of the students and below 75% of the students.
DOMA Pre-Algebra and DOMA Algebra are also criterion-referenced assessments, although they don't have grade-level scores. They report as raw scores.
