Standard scores must be provided as evidence of below average performance.
A standard score is converted from the frequency distribution of raw scores for any one age group. This allows comparison of an individual’s performance against their age group.
Standard scores have a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15. The governing bodies therefore consider a standard score of below 85 indicative of below average performance.
Standard scores can sometimes be presented with a mean of 10 and a standard deviation of 3. A standard score of below 7 is equivalent to achieving a score of below 85 on a composite standard score.
The table and figure below show the relationship between standard scores and other common score scales.
