Z Score Calculator

This calculator finds the standardized z-score for a provided raw score (x), a population mean (𝝻) and a population standard deviation (πž‚).

The z-score (z) formula is

z = (x – 𝝻) / πž‚

Enter the raw score, the population mean, and the population standard deviation and then click the Calculate button.

Z score: (X𝝁) / 𝝈 =

About the Z-score

The Z-score describes the position of a raw score in terms of its distance from the mean measured in standard deviation units. If the z-score is positive, the raw score lies above the mean, and if it is negative the raw score lies below the mean.

We can use the z-score to calculate the probability of a score occurring within a standard normal distribution. We can also compare two scores from different samples, which may have different means and standard deviations.
