Two of my stimuli have the same score, but only one of them is showing a statistically significant difference to a norm or benchmark score. Why is this?

When testing mean scores for significance against a norm, several factors are taken into account - not just the difference in score. The number of respondents (the sample size) and the spread of responses (the standard error) both also play a role in the calculation.
