    Personal Understanding of Accuracy and Precision

    Accuracy would mean how close your result is to how it really should be while Precision would mean how many times you are able to get close results. The farther you are away from the real, true result, then your results are inaccurate. The farther your results are from each other, then your results are imprecise.

    Accuracy can be obtained once or for each result you generate. On the other hand, you need more than one result to obtain precision, hence why repeatability is associated with the term.

    Examples from our AnaChem Lab class last semester:
    Accuracy — recording an endpoint close to the true equivalence point

    Precision — recording endpoints that have close values to each other
