The formula to convert a z score to a t score is: T = (Z x 10) + 50. Example question: A candidate for a job takes a written test where the average score is 1026 and the standard deviation is 209.

## How do you find the z score for T distribution?

The formula to convert a z score to a t score is: T = (Z x 10) + 50. Example question: A candidate for a job takes a written test where the average score is 1026 and the standard deviation is 209.

### What is Z in T distribution?

Like a standard normal distribution (or z-distribution), the t-distribution has a mean of zero. The normal distribution assumes that the population standard deviation is known.

#### Is T score the same as Z score?

Z score is the subtraction of the population mean from the raw score and then divides the result with population standard deviation. T score is a conversion of raw data to the standard score when the conversion is based on the sample mean and sample standard deviation.

**How do you use the T distribution table?**

To use the t-distribution table, you only need to know three values:

- The degrees of freedom of the t-test.
- The number of tails of the t-test (one-tailed or two-tailed)
- The alpha level of the t-test (common choices are 0.01, 0.05, and 0.10)

**What kind of distribution is the T distribution?**

normal distribution

The T distribution, also known as the Student’s t-distribution, is a type of probability distribution that is similar to the normal distribution with its bell shape but has heavier tails. T distributions have a greater chance for extreme values than normal distributions, hence the fatter tails.

## What is T and z-score?

The T-score is a comparison of a person’s bone density with that of a healthy 30-year-old of the same sex. The Z-score is a comparison of a person’s bone density with that of an average person of the same age and sex.

### What does T-score and z-score mean?

DEXA scores are reported as “T-scores” and “Z-scores.” The T-score is a comparison of a person’s bone density with that of a healthy 30-year-old of the same sex. The Z-score is a comparison of a person’s bone density with that of an average person of the same age and sex.
