I thought this new scoring system would take care of all the other issues...

I have a bunch of scores for sites that are the sum of the individual scores of the samples that they contain. The number of samples in each site varies from 1 to several hundred. I would like to adjust the overall site scores to adjust for the variance in samples, so that a site with 200 samples doesn't overwhelm a site that has 10 where the site may be just as significant. However, I'm at a complete loss as how to accomplish this. Any thoughts?
