Standard deviation is a measure of the spread of data around the mean. The standardized value or z-score, tells how many standard deviations the measurement is away from the mean, and in which direction.

z score = (observation - mean) / standard deviation

Standard deviation is the unit measurement. This tells what the value a decimal is.
