New Updates to Milestones Norms for Fall 2022
Milestones is an interim assessment of reading and mathematics that complements the CTP.
When it was first launched in the fall of 2020, ERB used CTP data to construct Milestones norms. This was appropriate given that Milestones and CTP share the same score scale and use very similar test specifications.
After two years of administration, ERB determined that it collected sufficient data to construct norms based on actual Milestones test-takers. These norms better reflect students’ performance on Milestones and are more useful to members interpreting results. ERB will keep adding years to the Milestones norm until we reach the three-year rolling norm.
For fall 2022, norms are based on 4,000 to 5,000 students taking each Milestone subtest. Although we did not provide association norms for the fall, the students in the norm group represented 34 of the 50 associations where ERB members belong, indicating that the norm group was a representative sample.

Be sure to register for our office hours later this fall which will go in-depth about norms and provide tips on how to better understand your data.
