Dominie Stanine Scoring System
• A stanine is a type of scaled score used in many
norm-referenced standardized tests. There are
nine stanine units (the term is short for
"standard nine-point scale"), ranging from 9 to
1. Typically, stanine scores are interpreted as
above average (9, 8, 7), average (6, 5, 4), and
below average (3, 2, 1). Using only nine
numbers, stanine scoring is usually easier to
understand than other scoring models.
