      Criterion-referenced assessments are different from the norm-referenced assessments most people are accustomed to. Unlike the norm-referenced assessments which evaluate a particular student's work and compare it to the performance of another group of students, criterion-referenced assessments test a student's performance against a standard or criteria.

        A criterion referenced test is a test that measures test takers against a specific set of criteria. Many licensing exams are criterion referenced. That is, as long as the test taker scores above a certain grade, a 70% for example, the test taker can pass the test. Norm and Criterion Referenced Assessment Comparisons There are various ways and means to assess student achievement in the numerous educational settings across the United States. Two types or categories of tests are the norm referenced test and the criterion referenced tests. A norm referenced test compares each student that takes the test to another set of students that had previously taken.

A criterion-referenced test for Mathematics should reflect the scope and sequence of state standards (such as the common core state standards.)   It would reflect the skills needed at each age:  for young mathematicians, understanding one to one correspondence, numeracy and at least addition as an operation.

Criterion referenced assessment: This type of assessment is a highly effective means of obtaining information about students' ability to perform specific language tasks. Criterion referenced assessment has an advantage over norm referenced assessment in that it is precise in identifying what students can and cannot do with daily oral and/or written language tasks.

The first Statewide Criterion Referenced Testing took place with the Minimum Performance Testing, the High School Exit Exam, and then ACTAAP began in with grade 4 Reading, Writing and Mathematics that was designed to align with the Arkansas’s Curriculum Frameworks.

Psychiatric or other diagnoses are forms of criterion-referenced testing, the presence or absence of signs and symptoms of ASD constituting the criteria. Most language testing books have hitherto focused almost exclusively on norm-referenced testing, whereby test takers' scores are interpreted with reference to the performance of other test takers.

A criterion-referenced test is a style of test which uses test scores to generate a statement about the behavior that can be expected of a person with that score. Most tests and quizzes that are written by school teachers can be considered criterion-referenced tests.

In this case, the objective is simply to see whether the student has learned the material. Criterion-referenced assessment can be contrasted with.

Criterion-referenced tests are usually developed to have content that that is specifically designed with a curriculum that will measure specific skills that students may have achieved and involved following given instructions to display the level of skills obtained (Popham ).

Recall from Module 1 that there are two general categories of test scores that are reported on standardized test score reports: criterion-referenced and norm-referenced scores. Criterion-referenced and norm-referenced tests—or more specifically, criterion- and norm-referenced test scores—serve very different purposes in terms of reporting student performance.

Criterion-referenced interpretation is the interpretation of a test score as a measure of the knowledge, skills, and abilities an individual or group can demonstrate from a clearly defined content or behavior domain.

It is often defined as a contrast to norm-referenced interpretation, where an individual’s score only has meaning when it is compared to other individuals’ scores.

Thus, criterion-referenced assessment arguably achieves greater validity. An example of the alignment between the assessment criteria and the unit objectives on a criterion-referenced assessment sheet appears in Table 1 (below). This is an extract from the LWB Real Property A criterion-referenced assessment sheet, which was designed by the.

Criterion-referenced assessments, on the other hand, compare students to a specific goal (think those “chapter tests” you used to take in school).

Diagnostic: Used to understand what students already know and can do, diagnostic assessments are often given at the beginning of a new unit or at the start of an academic year. Teachers use criterion-referenced tests to determine which specific concepts, such as parts of speech or adding fractions, a child has learned in class.

Some tests are commercially produced and sold as part of a curriculum. The Brigance system is an example. Other teachers develop specific tests to complement their unique lesson plans.Criterion-Referenced Language Testing by James Dean Brown, Thom Hudson starting at $ Criterion-Referenced Language Testing has 1 available editions to buy at Half Price Books .
