``Not surprisingly, the (test) results show that it is difficult for students to do well in academic content areas until they are proficient in English.''

n the number in a frequency distribution below which a certain percentage of fees will fall. E.g., the ninetieth percentile is the number that divides the distribution of fees into the lower 90% and the upper 10%, or that fee level rankings, a way of measuring performance against a national norm. A percentile rank The percentile rank of a score is the percentage of scores in its frequency distribution which are lower. For example, a test score which is greater than 85% of the scores of people taking the test is said to be at the 85th percentile. of 50 is considered the national average.
