# Tutorials for drawing an ROC curve

Are there tutorials you recommend that teach how to draw an ROC curve?

Thanks.

• I think you need to be more precise. Do you want to draw them by hand (don't), or use a specific piece of software (R, SPSS, ...)? What exactly is your problem with drawing them? – Nick Sabbe Aug 8 '11 at 13:59
• See my answer to your previous question -- I think it is a pretty straightforward description of ROC. – user88 Aug 8 '11 at 14:28
• The most important thing to learn is WHEN to draw ROC curves. 95% of the examples that I have seen are unnecessary and do not represent the best approach to the problem. – Frank Harrell Aug 9 '11 at 13:21
• @Nick Sabbe. Since I'm trying to learn how to plot an ROCcurve, a tutorial to show you the steps and how it is built would be fine, but I will surely use a software for that. Thanks – Simplicity Aug 10 '11 at 15:54
• Programmers’ Niche in this document, p.33, would be a great read. – nalzok Mar 15 at 2:07
