Accuracy

Description

The accuracy of a measurement system is the degree of closeness of measurements of a quantity to that quantity’s actual (true) value. Accuracy is also used as a statistical measure of how well a binary classification test correctly identifies or excludes a condition. The accuracy is the proportion of true results (both true positives and true negatives) in the population.
