Predicted ROC curve


Predict ROC curves from metaSDTreg object.


## S3 method for class 'metaSDTreg'
predict_roc(object, type = c("1", "n", "s"), s0 = 0, s1 = 1, ...)



An object of class metaSDTreg.


The type of ROC curve to predict. A character string, where '1' requests the type 1 ROC curve (the default), 'n' requests the type 2 noise-specific and 's' the type 2 signal-specific ROC curve.


Numeric, the value of 'signal' to regard as 'noise'. Defaults to 0.


Numeric, the value of 'signal' to regard as 'signal'. Defaults to 1.


For future methods


The 'metaSDTreg' object given to the function must have named coefficients with names as they would be if metaSDTreg is run without user-supplied starting values.

A ROC curve is a 2-D curve parametrised by some x given by c(FA(x), HR(x)) where FA is the false alarm rate and HR is the hit rate. For example, for type 1 ROC,

FA(x) = 1 - pnorm(x - s0*d),

HR(x) = 1 - pnorm(x - s1*d),

where d is the signal sensitivity.

Note that the predicted ROC curve is for a reference individual in the regression, i.e. additional covariates are not entered into the ROC so that reparametrisation of the 'metaSDTreg' model is needed to change predictions.


A function of class 'predict_roc' containing the appropriate ROC curve. This is a function of x which returns c(FA,HR), where FA is the false alarm rate and HR is the hit rate.

## Declare simulated data as metaSDTdata
metadata <- metaSDTdata(simMetaData, type1='resp', type2='conf', signal='S')

## Fit model to subset of data
fit <- metaSDTreg(A ~ signal,
            subset = m <= 20)

## Model-predicted signal-specific ROC curve
signalROC <- predict_roc(fit, type = 's')
