Standard Score
In statistics , the STANDARD SCORE is the signed number of standard deviations by which the value of an observation or data point is above the mean value of what is being observed or measured. Observed values above the mean have positive standard scores, while values below the mean have negative standard scores. The standard score is a dimensionless quantity obtained by subtracting the population mean from an individual raw score and then dividing the difference by the population standard deviation . This conversion process is called STANDARDIZING or NORMALIZING (however, "normalizing" can refer to many types of ratios; see normalization for more). Standard scores are also called Z-VALUES, Z-SCORES, NORMAL SCORES, and STANDARDIZED VARIABLES. They are most frequently used to compare an observation to a standard normal deviate , though they can be defined without assumptions of normality

Weighted Mean
The WEIGHTED ARITHMETIC MEAN is similar to an ordinary arithmetic mean (the most common type of average ), except that instead of each of the data points contributing equally to the final average, some data points contribute more than others. The notion of weighted mean plays a role in descriptive statistics and also occurs in a more general form in several other areas of mathematics. If all the weights are equal, then the weighted mean is the same as the arithmetic mean . While weighted means generally behave in a similar fashion to arithmetic means, they do have a few counterintuitive properties, as captured for instance in Simpson\'s paradox
