Accuracy is the proximity of measurement results to the true value; precision, the repeatability, or reproducibility of the measurement A measurement system can be accurate but not precise, precise but not accurate, neither, or both.
For example, if an experiment contains a systematic error, then increasing the sample size generally increases precision but does not improve accuracy. The result would be a consistent yet inaccurate string of results from the flawed experiment. Eliminating the systematic error improves accuracy but does not change precision. A measurement system is considered valid if it is both accurate and precise. Nature Publishing Group : science journals, jobs, and informatio. GFZ. EIT ICT LABS. Welcome to the Scopus Support Site.
