Spring 2023 CTP Norms Update

By ERB Team / February 28, 2023

By Adrienne Hu and Glenn Milewski For the Spring 2023 reporting cycle, the rolling norm continues to use four consecutive years of data. CTP norms are typically updated annually for each reporting cycle (fall and spring). These “rolling norms” as they are often called, are obtained after gathering three years of data, and in the fourth year, deleting the earliest year and adding data from the most recent administration. During the pandemic, however, when many member schools suspended in-person testing, ERB “froze” the CTP norms.  Instead of updating them with limited data from that unusual moment in history, ERB provided […] read more

All About the Data – Understanding CTP Norms

By Glenn Milewski / September 13, 2022

CTP Norms Fall 2022 As the 2022-2023 school year gets underway, we want to update you on the latest with CTP norms and explain how we developed the current CTP norms in relation to pre and post-pandemic data. CTP norms for the fall 2021 test administrations were frozen due to anomalies in the fall 2020 data (e.g., low volume, non-representative samples, and COVID disruptions). Norms were unfrozen in the fall of 2022 given: the desire for members to understand performance in relation to the pandemic context, and a rebound in test taking that occurred as members adapted to schooling during […] read more

Understanding ERB’s Updated CTP Norms

By Glenn Milewski / March 15, 2022

By Glenn Milewski and Adrienne Hu Introduction At ERB, our goal is to help schools see the potential in every student.  We believe a great way to do this is by offering assessments at various points of a student’s career and enabling educators to explore and extract insight from assessment data using 360 Access.   One way our members understand student learning is by comparing their assessment results to ERB norms.  The purpose of norms is to describe the test performance of a reference group of test-takers. Norms are useful only insofar as the data sets used to compute them represent […] read more
