Other than using AIC and BIC, I'd like to compare two different models via graphical interpretation, therefore my question is, is it possible to compare two regression models with each one having the same set of independent variables but different response variables with residual plots?

    $\begingroup$ If the response variables are different, what do you want to compare the models for? Different response variable also means different residual plots. Of course you still can compare them and detect some patterns but it seems to me you'd have to be very careful. $\endgroup$ – Denwid Mar 29 '18 at 15:14

My primary aim is to set up two different regression models with different response variables, and both of the responses are the results of diagnostic tests for a specific disease. I'd like to find out the one that fits the data most to be able to suggest this model for calculating risk scores.
