acc: Accuracy (acc) is the probability of a correct decision.

Description Usage Format Details References See Also Examples


acc defines overall accuracy as the probability of correspondence between a positive decision and true condition (i.e., the proportion of correct classification decisions or of dec_cor cases).




An object of class numeric of length 1.


Importantly, correct decisions dec_cor are not necessarily positive decisions dec_pos.

See accu for other accuracy metrics and several possible interpretations of accuracy.


Consult Wikipedia:Accuracy_and_precision for additional information.
