Unformatted text preview: So based on Table 3.26, we see that for the rule "You are drunk if your total FST is 2 2," the false positive rate (FPR) is 27/29 = 0.931 (93.1%), and the sensitivity is 266/267 = 0.996 (99.6%). Different rules have different FPRs and sensitivities. That is, if the rule is "You are drunk if your total FST is 2 4," the FPR and sensitivity will be different than that we just calculated. A plot of sensitivity (y-axis) versus FPR (x-axis) for different rules is called a Receiver Operating Characteristic Curve (ROC). THE ASSIGNMENT For this assignment, you need to turn in: 1. A completely filled out copy of Table 3.27 below. If you want to receive full credit, you will need to make sure that all the entries are correct. Take your time on the calculations. 2. An ROC plot of the 10 values of the rule given. This has to be completed with computer plot software (such as Excel) 3. A decision and defense of what you think the best rule is, based on the information in your plot. There won't be only one clearly correct answer here, only evidence that you are aware of performance issues as the rules change. All three of these pieces need to be placed in a carefully written final paper. Your instructor will give you the details concerning format, style, and submission procedure.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
