Parent_voidhawkltd, Mar 15, 2013, 7:04 pm

I don't know either LOL

Parent_wizzball, Mar 15, 2013, 7:04 pm

No idea - never heard of it!

It means they are WAY above average (top 5% or something) for the country in reading and comprehension, and a little above average in Maths.

Very similar to my daughter and nothing to worry about at all.(People are rarely exceptional in all areas.)

Stanine 9 is the top 3% (I thihk) you cant get higher.

Parent_charlieb2, Mar 15, 2013, 7:06 pm

That is for their year level.

Thank you :D. The maths one is excellent - he was really struggling with that at one point.

Parent_wizzball, Mar 15, 2013, 7:07 pm

Checked.Its 'well above average top %"

Parent_charlieb2, Mar 15, 2013, 7:07 pm

The stanines are where your child fits in a bell shaped curve, 9 meaning they are in the top 4%, 1 means they are really struggling, 5 means they are bang on average.

Oh Yay.Great when they catch up and then overtake!

Parent_grphug4, Mar 15, 2013, 7:09 pm

Stanines relate to the results from PAT (progress achievement tests) that are given to yr 3 (only one of the tests from memory) and above at primary school. As mentioned, stanine 9 is the top, 5 is 'average', below that and it's pretty self explanatory.

Top of the curve

Parent_fishing69, Mar 15, 2013, 7:13 pm

do we find out the kids test results do you know!thanks

Parent_robyn35, Mar 15, 2013, 7:14 pm

mine were always a 9 for reading and comprehension, but a 4 in maths.

Parent_hunnyb1, Mar 15, 2013, 7:18 pm


Should do. A diagnostic report usually goes out end of this term or start of next & that has them all on. Don't quote me though, as sometimes the system changes.

Parent_pommie777, Mar 15, 2013, 7:27 pm

My son brought his results home today :)

Parent_wizzball, Mar 15, 2013, 7:48 pm

I find it weird that you guys are getting reports of stanines without there being some from of stanine graph included with the report.That is supossed to be standard.
