Paper Abstract

We are currently developing an easy-to-use, microcomputer-based software application to help researchers perform ROC studies. The software will have facilities for aiding the researcher in all phases of an ROC study, including experiment design, setting up and conducting test sessions, analyzing results and generating reports. The initial version of the software, named 'ROC Assistant', operates on Macintosh computers and enables the user to enter a case list, run test sessions and produce an ROC curve. We are in the process of developing enhanced versions which will incorporate functions for statistical analysis, experimental design and online help. In this paper we discuss the ROC methodology upon which the software is based as well as our software development effort to date.
