z-scores and the Denver Broncos


Grantland: Bill Barnwell Denver Broncos Week 4

Cue paragraph 4, where Barnwell starts talking about z-scores,1 means, and standard deviations. 2

By the way… what I wouldn’t give to attend the game this Sunday in Dallas.

  1. If you’re currently in my class, you won’t learn about z-scores until Wednesday or Thursday… but if you’re currently in my class, what are you doing on my blog? Don’t you have more important things to do?? Such as your AP Stat homework? []
  2. Although… now that I think about it… I’m wondering if the scenario doesn’t warrant the use of standard errors and t-scores, as opposed to standard deviations and z-scores. Hmmm. []
