I noticed that as I complete additional courses in a Tech Academy Pathway, the Dashboard screen shows that my ranking is going down, which doesn't seem right. I started off in top 79% and after finishing several courses, i dropped to the top 86%..
I think the calculation/language may be wrong, and I should have been going from the top 21% up to the top 14%. Can anyone confirm?
We're actually using the universal interpretation for percentiles on Tech Academy.
The 86th percentile in your case means that 86% of the other values lie below yours, and 14% lie above it. Hence, the more you complete, you'll score in an increasingly higher percentile. It's the same interpretation that is e.g. used for SAT, GRE test scores etc.
