Question

Math part of SAT test scores has mean μ=500 and standard deviation σ=100. ACT test scores have mean μ=18 and standard deviation σ=6. Eleanor scored 680 on her SAT math test, Frodo received score of 27 on his ACT test.

Assuming that both tests measured the same ability, who has a better score.

Answer #1

An Z score can be used to compared the scores having two different distributions.

Z = (X - )/

For Eleanor's SAT score, = 500

= 100

X = 680

Z = (680 - 500)/100 = 1.80

For Frodo's ACT score, = 18

= 6

X = 27

Z = (27 - 18)/6 = 1.5

The Z score is higher for the Eleanor's SAT score. Therefore,
**Eleanor** has a better score.

Eleanor scores 680 on the mathematics part of the SAT. The
distribution of SAT math scores in recent years has been Normal
with mean 535 and standard deviation 97.
Gerald takes the ACT Assessment mathematics test and scores 27.
ACT math scores are Normally distributed with mean 22.8 and
standard deviation 2.1.

Suppose that SAT math scores are normally distributed with a
mean of 516 and a standard deviation of 115, while ACT math scores
have a normal distribution with a mean of 22 and a standard
deviation of 5. James scored 650 on the SAT math and Jacob scored
29 on the ACT math. Who did better in terms of the standardized
z-score?
Group of answer choices
James
Jacob
They did relatively the same.
Impossible to tell because of the scaling

ACT and SAT scores are both known to be normally distributed. In
2017, the mean and standard deviation for the ACT were μ=20 and
σ=6, respectively. The mean and standard deviation for the SAT were
μ=1060 and σ=200, respectively.
a. What ACT score would place a student in the same percentile
as a student who scored 1370 on the SAT in 2010? (In other words,
what ACT score is "equivalent" to an SAT score of 1370?) Round your
answer to...

Scores on the SAT test have a mean of 1518 and a standard
deviation of 325. Scores on the ACT test have a mean of 21.1 and a
standard deviation of 4.8. A) Use the range rule of thumb to
identify the minimum and maximum “usual” scores of the SAT test. B)
For a score of 2258 on the SAT test, is the amount unusual? C)
Which is relatively better: a score of 1253 on the SAT test or a...

SAT scores have a mean of 1026 and a standard deviation of 209.
ACT scores have a mean of 20.8 and a standard deviation of 4.8. A
student takes both tests while a junior and scores 860 on the SAT
and 16 on the ACT. Compare the scores.

For a certain year, the mean math SAT score nationally
was 527 with a standard deviation of 86. Scores were normally
distributed.
Which value below is closest to the highest math SAT score a
person could get and still be in the lowest 30% for the population
of all math SAT scores?
A.
380
B.
680
C.
480
D.
580

Scores by women on the SAT-1 test are normally distributed
with a mean of 988 and a standard deviation of 202. Scores by women
on the ACT test are normally distributed with a mean of 20.9 and a
standard deviation of 4.6.
If a women gets a SAT score that is the 77th percentile, find
her actual SAT score and her equivalent ACT score.

Math SAT: The math SAT test was originally
designed to have a mean of 500 and a standard deviation of 100. The
mean math SAT score last year was 515 but the standard deviation
was not reported. You read in an article for an SAT prep course
that states in a sample of 87 students, the mean math score was
534, but they did not disclose the standard deviation. Assume the
population standard deviation (σ) for all prep course
students...

Suppose a college math scores are approximately normally
distributed with mean μ=70 and standard deviation σ=10.
a. What score should a student aim to receive to be in the 95th
percentile of the math scores?
b. You took a random sample of 25 students from this population.
What is the probability that the average score in the sample will
be equal to or greater than 75?
