2015 RIT Scale Norms Study Data files are available only to NWEA partners.  NWEA will also permit access to third party data warehouse providers using NWEA data for reporting and data analysis on behalf of NWEA partners if NWEA has certified the data warehouse to be accurately representing NWEA data.

Partners, please contact your account manager to receive the files. Third-party data warehouse providers must contact NWEA business development (strategicbusinessalliances@nwea.org) to receive the files with NWEA approval.
