Raw Score

Z Scores >

A raw score is simply unaltered data from a test or observation. It is recorded in its original form by a researcher before being subjected to any statistical analysis. For instance, if a participant is given a set of ten questions and answers seven right, their raw score might be 7.

Typically raw scores are converted to standard scores or percentiles before being used in comparisons.
