Compute the points for an ROC curve

Computes sensitivity and specificity for a variety of cutoffs

Usage
roc(data, class, dataGrid = TRUE, gridLength = 100, positive = levels(class)[1])
Arguments
data
a numeric variable to cut along
class
a factor with class memberships. There must be only two classes.
dataGrid
should the data define the grid of cut-points? If not a sequence of evenly spaced intervals is used.
gridLength
number of intervals to use if the data do not define the grid.
positive
a character string for the level of the class variable that defines a "positive" event
Value

  • A matrix of results with columns "cutoff", "sensitivity" and "specificity"

Note

The first row in the output has a cutoff of NA, zero sensitivity and specificity of one.

                       group = factor(rep(letters[1:2], each = 200)))
   
densityplot(~testData$x, groups = testData$group, auto.key = TRUE)   
   
roc(testData$x, testData$group)
