Instructions: This web page calculates a receiver operating characteristic
curve from data pasted into the input data field below. To analyze your data, use the following steps
to fill out the data form on this page.
Computer requirements: Reasonably up-to-date versions of
Java and Apple Safari or Microsoft Internet Explorer are required.
Google Chrome is not recommended because its latest
versions do not support Java. Due to its continuing
evolution, the latest Java version
is highly recommended. Java is no longer installed by default on some new
computers, so manual installation of Java may be required.
- Select the data format. (See explanation of data formats.)
- Paste or enter your data into the "Input Data" field or click the "Paste Example Data" button. Data may be pasted from programs such as
Microsoft Excel or Word.
- Enter the number of rating categories. (See explanation of data formats.) This is not needed for the example data or Format 5.
- Click the "Run Program" button.
- To export the ROC plot to Microsoft Word or Excel, see instructions below.
Running the first time: When loading this page for the first time, you may need to

Acknowledgment: This web page contains JROCFIT and JLABROC4,
Java programs for calculating receiver operating
characteristic (ROC) curves. JROCFIT performs calculations for discrete ratings data,
and JLABROC4 performs calculations for continuously distributed data. JROCFIT and
JLABROC4 are direct translations of the ROCFIT
and LABROC4 programs, respectively. The latter two were Fortran programs
developed by the late Charles Metz and colleagues at the University of Chicago.
JROCFIT and JLABROC4 reproduce all output of the original programs.
See below for program translation details.
