Question

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.

- What is Elanor's standardized score?

Round to 2 decimal places. - What is Gerald's standardized score?

Round to 2 decimal places. - Assuming that both tests measure the same kind of ability, who
has the higher score?

- Gerald.
- Elanor.
- They both did equally well.

Answer #1

Let the standardized score of Elanor be ZE .

where is the mean score in Elanor's test and be the standard deviation of the scores in Elanor's test.

Let the standardized score of Gerald be ZG .

where is the mean score in Gerald's test and be the standard deviation of the scores in Gerald's test.

Assuming that both tests measure the same kind of ability,

Hence Gerald's score is higher Elanor's score.

Hopefully this will help you. In case of any query, do comment. If you are satisfied with the answer, give it a like. Thanks

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.

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?

James
Jacob
They did relatively the same.
Impossible to tell because of the scaling

Sagan scored 1200 on the SAT. The distribution of SAT scores in
a reference population is normally distributed with mean 980 and
standard deviation 100. Andrea scored 27 on the ACT. The
distribution of ACT scores in a reference population is normally
distributed with mean 20 and standard deviation 5. Who performed
better on the standardized exams and why?
a. Sagan scored higher than Andrea. Sagan's standardized score
was 2.2, which is 2.2 standard deviations above the mean and
Andrea's...

Suppose the mathematics SAT scores are normally distributed
with a mean of 500 and a standard deviation of 100. If a school
only accepts students with SAT math scores in the top 10 percent,
what are the minimum SAT scores that would be acceptable for that
school?

According to the College Board website, the scores on the math
part of the SAT (SAT-M) in a certain year had a mean of 507 and
standard deviation of 111. Assume that SAT scores follow a normal
distribution.
One of the criteria for admission to a certain engineering
school is an SAT-M score in the top 3% of scores. How does this
translate to an actual SAT-M score? In other words, how high must a
student score on the SAT-M...
