Member Training: ROC Curves

by Karen Grace-Martin

ROC Curves are incredibly useful in evaluating any model or process that predicts group membership of individuals.

ROC stands for Receiver Operating Characteristic. This strange name goes back to its original use of assessing the accuracy of sonar readings. Any ROC can tell you how well a process or model distinguishes between true and false positives and negatives.

In this webinar, we’ll talk about what ROC Curves do, when they’re useful, and how to interpret the curve and some related statistics.

Note: This training is an exclusive benefit to members of the Statistically Speaking Membership Program and part of the Stat’s Amore Trainings Series. Each Stat’s Amore Training is approximately 90 minutes long.
