Explanation:
Nothing to explain here. And I assume the singular is תשיעונית not תשיעון since the plural is תשיעוניות

Stanine comes from standard nine. Here's a definition:
A standard score between 1 to 9, with a mean of 5 and a standard deviation of 2. The first stanine is the lowest scoring group and the 9th stanine is the highest scoring group.
