I Say... Accuracy (Accurate) - Definition

Accuracy - the degree of agreement of the results of a measurement process with an established standard (see Precision definition). Assumes the measurement process is in statistical control.

Accuracy relates to the quality of a result, and is distinguished from precision, which relates to the quality of the operation by which the result is obtained.

Accuracy is the condition to which a given measurement agrees with the standard value for that measurement.....Or we can say it is the condition or quality of being correct.....

Re: Accuracy (Accurate) - Definition

Accuracy and precision are defined in terms of systematic and random errors. The more common definition associates accuracy with systematic errors and precision with random errors. Another definition, advanced by ISO, associates trueness with systematic errors and precision with random errors, and defines accuracy as the combination of both trueness and precision.
