Abstract:

In the context of both the Fisher and the Neyman-Pearson formulations, this article develops a method of testing superiority of fit to determine which of two different numerical predictions is more nearly accurate. Based on the assumption that the two predictions are not equally nearly accurate, the method is sequential continuing until a decision is reached in favor of one prediction or the other. The error probability of this decision is specifiable in advance of the test.
