A new method for evaluating equivalence between two diagnostic procedures is proposed in paired-sample ordinal data.The standard of non-inferiority is defined.On the basis of large sample theory,the score evaluation procedure for detecting non-inferiority is developed.Monte Carle simulation is conducted to evaluate the finite sample performance of this test procedure.The simulation results show that the proposed asymptotic test procedure performs well in most of situations.
