Standardized Test Scores 
What is a Standardized Test?
A standardized test is a type of test that is given to all children with the same directions and generally the same content across the nation. Standardized tests are given so that teachers and parents can have information which can help them determine the child’s progress in school, in comparison with other students his or her age. Percentile ranks range from 1 to 99. To determine these percentile ranks, the student's scores are compared with the scores of students in a certain group who represent the same grade level tested at the same time. A national percentile rank (NPR) indicates your relative standing in comparison with other students in the nation. For example, if you earned a national percentile rank of 72 on the Science test, it means that you scored higher than 72% of the students taking the test nation wide... it also means that 28% got a higher score!
