Consider the situation in which we would like to determine whether some object has a certain property. For example, the object might be a chemical and the unknown property might be the potential carcinogenicity of the chemical. Suppose, further, that we have a set of tests that we can use to help us determine whether the property is present in the object. In Chapter 3 we discussed several analyses for computing the performances of the tests and the interdependencies between the pairs of tests, and in Chapter 4 we discussed how one can select the “best” battery of tests to use for a particular application. In this chapter, it is assumed that we have chosen a battery to use, we have applied this battery on the object, and now we must interpret the results of this battery.
