We are currently converting student test scores in this manner :
( ScaledScore - ScaledScore Mean ) / StdDeviation ) * 15 + 100
I was referring to this calculation as a z-score, I found some information that convinced me that I should really be referring to it as a t-score as opposed to a z-score.
My boss wants me to call it a "Standard Score" on our reports. Are z-scores and t-scores both considered standard scores?
Is there a well known abbreviation for "Standard Score"?
Can someone point me to a reference that will definitively solve this issue.
