    A mean of zero and a standard deviation of 1 simply mean that the measurements are following the standard normal distribution curve. Im not sure if you knew this already. Unfortunately, I know little statistics (not sure what a standardised value is, I assume it is the value on the s.d. scale) but what I do now is that you should use calculators to answer questions like this. Invnorm and cdfnorm (on the TI-83) might be useful.
