I've been doing missions for awhile now and I was wondering if there's anyway to see standing more accurately. I had trouble at one point when I had 5.0 standing but I couldn't anchor a POS. I also wonder if there is any way to predict the standing gain from completing a particular mission.

This is a complicated topic - first question is are you in a player corporation?
If not then you cannot raise a POS at all.
Second question: Is your standing to the faction that controls the space where you want to raise the POS at 5 or is it your security status?
In any case it is your corporation's standing to the faction that controls the space where you want to raise the POS that counts.
There is a highly detailed article written by yours truly on faction standings here: http://www.eve-links.com/factions-%E2%80%93-love-me-or-hate-me/
