The OT saw that Nicole’s grip strength was 2 standard deviations below the normal measurement range for 26-year-old women. A test that uses norm referenced data provides ranges of measurements or scores that were compiled during or shortly after the test’s development. This data was obtained by administering the test to people of certain ages and genders who did not have disabilities in the area measured. The set of data allows practitioners to compare scores obtained when testing patients with the scores obtained from the non-disabled people. These scores are called the norm referenced data.
