Let's pause here and think for a moment about what z scores do not tell us.

To do this, we need to remember that the 90th percentile is 40 percentile points above the mean, so we are looking for the z score at which 40% of the distribution falls between the mean and this z score. , the percentage of the distribution that falls between the mean and the z score or the percentage that falls above the z score), and often both. 28. 28. Step 2: Convert this z score back into the original unit of measurement. Remember that the SAT-math test is measured on a scale from 0 to 800.
