conforming exactly or almost exactly to fact or to a standard or performing with total accuracy; "an accurate reproduction"; "the accounting was accurate"; "accurate measurements"; "an accurate scale"
(of ideas, images, representations, expressions) characterized by perfect conformity to fact or truth ; strictly correct; "a precise image"; "a precise measurement"
(accurately) with few mistakes; "he works very accurately"
(accuracy) the quality of being near to the true value; "he was beginning to doubt the accuracy of his compass"; "the lawyer questioned the truth of my account"
(accuracy) (mathematics) the number of significant figures given in a number; "the atomic clock enabled scientists to measure time with much greater accuracy"
In the fields of science, engineering, industry and statistics, the accuracy of a measurement system is the degree of closeness of measurements of a quantity to its actual (true) value. ...
ACCURATE (A Center for Correct, Usable, Reliable, Auditable, and Transparent Elections) was established in 2005 by a group of computer scientists, psychologists and policy experts to address problems with electronic voting. ...
(Accuracy (firearms)) Accurizing is the process of improving the accuracy of a firearm or airgun.
(Accuracy (song)) Three Imaginary Boys is English rock band The Cure's debut album, released in May 1979 by Fiction Records. It was later released in the United States with a slightly different song line-up as Boys Don't Cry.
(accurateness) The state or quality of being accurate; accuracy; exactness; nicety; precision
(Accuracy) (of selection)--Correlation between an animal's unknown actual breeding value and a calculated estimated breeding value.
(Accuracy) the ability to recognize words correctly
(accuracy) The capability of the software product to provide the right or agreed results or effects with the needed degree of precision. [ISO 9126] See also functionality testing.
accuracy is how close a numerical measure is to its actual value.
(Accuracy) Refers to rate constancy of a watch, not only on whether it is showing the exact time. A watch gaining or loosing exactly the same amount every day is considered accurate. It is considered "normal" for mechanical or automatic watches to gain/lose 4-6 minutes per day.
(accuracy) The determination of whether an element width or intercharacter gap width (if applicable) differs from its nominal width by more than the printing tolerance.
(Accuracy) Indicates how well a scale displays the correct results. Accuracy is the ability of the scale or balance to display a value that matches the ideal value for a known weight.
(accuracy) Degree of conformity with a standard. 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) The combined error due to nonlinearity, nonrepeatability, and hysteresis expressed as a percentage of full scale output.
(accuracy) the degree of uncertainty for which a measured value agrees the ideal value.
(Accuracy) The closeness of agreement between an observed value and an accepted reference value. Also see Precision.
(Accuracy) Closeness of results of observations, computations, or estimation of spatial features to their true value of position.
(ACCURACY) A measure of how close an estimate of a GPS position is to the true location
(Accuracy) The degree of conformance between the measured position and its true position. GPS accuracy is usually given as a statistical measure of system error. Not to be confused with precision. Something can be measured very precisely, but still be inaccurate. ...
(Accuracy) The degree to which a sample statistic would correspond to the population parameter it is meant to estimate if there were no random error. Accuracy is high when bias is low.
