afc.mc {afc} | R Documentation |
Routine to calculate the Generalized Discrimination Score (aka Two-Alternatives Forced Choice Score 2AFC) for the situation of polychotomous observations (ordinal) and continuous forecasts
afc.mc(obsv, fcst, m = 3)
obsv |
vector with polychotomous observations (values in 1,..,m) |
fcst |
vector of same length as obsv with real-valued forecasts |
m |
number of observation categories (default = 3) |
This routine applies Eq.18 of Mason and Weigel (2009) to calculate the 2AFC.
