roc {AUC}R Documentation

Compute the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve.

Description

This function computes the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve required for the auc function and the plot function.

Usage

  roc(predictions, labels)

Arguments

predictions

A numeric vector of classification probabilities (confidences, scores) of the positive event.

labels

A factor of observed class labels (responses) with the only allowed values {0,1}.

Value

A list containing the following elements:

cutoffs

A numeric vector of threshold values

fpr

A numeric vector of false positive rates corresponding to the threshold values

tpr
