A norm group is a reference group that is used to compare your respondent's scores on a test or scale against similar others. This gives the score meaning. For example, a score of 20/30 (known as the raw score) means nothing on it's own. We need to know how well similar others perform if it's an ability test or whether a person is scoring in the middle band, above or below the middle band in a personality questionnaire. By comparing the score with a group of similar others, we add meaning and thus interpretation to our observed score.
