DescriptionA computer program, ATEST, is described in this combination user's guide / programmer's manual. ATEST provides users with an efficient and convenient tool to test the accuracy of predictors. As input ATEST requires observed-predicted data pairs. The output reports the two components of accuracy, bias and precision.
