# Deviation IQ scores produce a normal curve that is shaped roughly like?

it is shaped roughly like a bell... a bell curve.

### What is the difference between z-score and t-score?

T-scores and z-scores measure the deviation from normal. The normal for T-score is 50 with standard deviation of 10. if the score on t-score is more than 50, it means that the person scored above normal (average), and vise versa. The normal for Z-score is 0. If Z-score is above 0, then it means that person scored above normal (average), and vise versa.

### Why does the standard deviation get smaller as the individual in a group score more similarly on a test?

Because the standard deviation is a measure of the spread in scores. As individuals score more similarly, the spread gets smaller. Because the standard deviation is a measure of the spread in scores. As individuals score more similarly, the spread gets smaller. Because the standard deviation is a measure of the spread in scores. As individuals score more similarly, the spread gets smaller. Because the standard deviation is a measure of the spread in scores…

### What does standard deviation show us about a set of scores?

Standard Deviation tells you how spread out the set of scores are with respects to the mean. It measures the variability of the data. A small standard deviation implies that the data is close to the mean/average (+ or - a small range); the larger the standard deviation the more dispersed the data is from the mean.
