Is the new 1 – 9 scale a stanine system?

No. Stanines impose a specific distribution of scores based on pre-determined standard deviations from the mean. The NIH scoring scale does not impose such a distribution. Percentiling is used to achieve comparability of scores across review groups (see section on Percentiling for more details).
