How to measure success of fault prediction models

  title={How to measure success of fault prediction models},
  author={Thomas J. Ostrand and Elaine J. Weyuker},
Many fault prediction models have been proposed in the software engineering literature, and their success evaluated according to various metrics that are widely used in the statistics community. To be able to make meaningful comparisons among the proposed models, it is important that the metrics assess meaningful properties of the predictions. We examine several of the more common metrics, discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each, and illustrate their application to predictions made on… CONTINUE READING
