Hi foreros!!

How would you translate "reduce by" to Spanish?

Goal: reduce by 29 the number of non-proficient students.

My try:

Meta: reducir por 29 el número de estudiantes no proficientes.

No me convence :confused:

    Hello.

    Reducir en ...

    I'd personally change 'no proficientes' (though it is correct); maybe (it may depend on context): no competentes/incompetentes, etc.

    Saludos.

    Se me ocurre:
    "rebajar en 29 el número de estudiantes incompetentes"

    ...disminuir/reducir en 29 alumnos el número de alumnos quienes no están cumpliendo con el nivel de "proficiente" (en la prueba STAR).

    I presume that you are referring to the level of "proficient" on the CST/STAR exams. "Proficient" in this case refers to a certain minimum level of performance on the test, hence I usually add "nivel" and quotation marks. "Proficient" is an education code word for "at grade level" so a direct translation to Spanish isn't possible, as far as I know.....
