Receiver Operating Characteristic (aka ROC) Party, hosted at University of North Carolina

Call in number:
Next Date:

Welcome to the ROC Party landing page! We will use this page to include a suggested syllabus and non project-specific material.

The bulk of the work happens in between our weekly calls, and there are several things that should happen in the coming weeks to get the most out of the party.

Following these steps makes it more likely than not that you’ll have both a deeper understanding of the concepts, and also a manuscript with at least the Methods, Results, tables and figures ready to go as soon as possible.
