A Z-test is any statistical test for which the distribution of the test statistic under the null hypothesis can be approximated by a normal distribution. Due to the central limit theorem, many test statistics are approximately normally distributed for large samples. Therefore, many statistical tests can be performed as approximate Z-tests if the sample size is not too small.

The term Z-test is often used to refer specifically to the one-sample location test comparing the mean of a set of measurements to a given constant.
