Routine to calculate the Generalized Discrimination Score (aka Two-Alternatives Forced Choice Score 2AFC) for the situation of dichotomous observations and continuous forecasts
afc.dc(obsv, fcst)
obsv |
vector with dichotomous observations (values in 0,1) |
fcst |
vector of same length as obsv with real-valued forecasts |
This routine applies Eq.8 of Mason and Weigel (2009) to calculate the 2AFC.
