What is a norm-referenced, standardized test?

A norm-referenced assessment is one in which a child's performance is compared to a large sample of same-aged students from across the nation. A standardized measure means that every individual who completes the assessment does so in the same way. Every test taker hears the same directions, is given the same sample items, and is allowed the same prompts that help the examiner gain a better understanding of the child.
