Abstract: We show that a standard theorem relating the growth of a function on a measurable set to constraints on its Dini derivates extends to a class of generalized derivatives. More precisely, we show that if $ \left\vert {{{\bar F'}_E}} \right\vert \leqslant M$ and $ \left\vert {{{\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle-}$}}{F} '}_E}} \right\vert \leqslant M$ on a measurable set $ A$, then $ \lambda (F(A)) \leqslant M\lambda (A)$. Here $ \lambda $ denotes Lebesgue measure and $ {\bar F'_E}$ and $ {\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle-}$}}{F} '_E}$ are the extreme derivates of $ F$ relative to a system of paths which satisfy the Intersection Condition [1]. In particular, the result holds in the setting of unilateral differentiation, approximate differentiation, preponderant differentiation and qualitative differentiation.
