NWEA's Stance on Testing
Norm-Referenced Testing (NWEA) VS. Criterion-Referenced Testing (STAAR)
Criterion-referenced tests (or CRTs) differ in that each examinee’s performance is compared to a pre-defined set of criteria or a standard. The goal with these tests is to determine whether or not the candidate has the demonstrated mastery of a certain skill or set of skills. These results are usually “pass” or “fail” .
