1. Given a mean of 60, with a standard deviation of 12, and with a raw score of 75, find:

(a) the z-score

Raw score=x= 75
Mean=M= 60
Standard deviation =s= 12
z=(x-M)/s= 1.25 =(75-60) / 12

Answer: 1.25

(b) percentile rank

"A percentile score indicates the percentage of people an individual did better than in a reference group. Example: A person scoring at the 84th percentile did better than 84% of those in the norming or reference group.

"

z= 1.25
Probability value corresponding to Z = 1.25 = 0.8944 0r 89.44%
