Parent topics


  • Accuracy of measurement [r]: closeness of the agreement between the result of a measurement and the value of the measurand [e]
  • Measurand [r]: The true value of a parameter of an object or phenomenon being measured (i.e., the measurement free of measurement error) [e]
  • Measurement [r]: The act of quantifying a property of an object or relation; the output of the instrument or procedure that does the quantification [e]
  • Repeatability of measurement [r]: closeness of the agreement between the results of successive measurements of the same measurand carried out under the same conditions of measurement [e]

Other related topics

  • Circular error probability [r]: The most common metric of how close to a target a weapon will strike: the radius of a circle, centered on the mean impact point, in which half the projectiles of that weapon will hit [e]
  • Precision-guided munition [r]: A powered or unpowered weapon that adjusts its flight path to hit a specific target, with a circular error probability in the low number of meters, often less than the radius of destruction [e]
  • Sensitivity and specificity [r]: measures for assessing the results of diagnostic and screening tests. [e]
