What is the highest raw score possible?

Ms. Sue
Is that the lowest 30th percentile? Or is it the lowest 30 percent of the total score?

I guess 100 is the highest the mean is 30.9 and the standard deviation 2.08 it just says children below the 30th percentile

PsyDAG
Z = (scoremean)/SD
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion (.30) and its Z score. (Pay attention to the sign.) Insert Z and other values in equation above to find the cutoff score.
