Excel STANDARDIZE Function

In this article, we will learn about how to use the STANDARDIZE function in Excel.

In simple words, normalised value (Z-score) of a value of the data set having mean (Average) of the data.

Z-score = (Value – Average) / (Standard deviation)

The STANDARDIZE function is a statistical function function. It takes returns a normalized value (z-score) for the values of the data

=STANDARDIZE (value, mean, standard_deviation)

Value : value to be normalised
Mean : Average of values
Standard_deviation : Standard deviation of the data
Let’s understand this function using it in an example.
Here we have scores of the students and we need to find the Z score for the data.

For mean, we will use the AVERAGE function and For Standard deviation, STDEV.P function.

Use the formula:


A2 : value to be normalised
AVERAGE(A2:A12) : mean of the data
STDEV.P(A2:A12) : Standard deviation of the data
As you can see the Z-score and its formula in adjacent cell from the above snapshot.
