Sensitivity Example: Comparison

  • The sensitivity of our experimental method is 96% and our current tried-and-true method is 92%.
  • Sensitivity, reflects the ability of a test to categorize those individuals with the condition as positive. A highly sensitive test will be positive in most individuals having the condition. Conversely, those individuals who test negatively with a highly sensitive test are unlikely to have the condition.
