Re: Word accuracy vs. precision
My understanding of the two concepts is more scientific. Accuracy is a measurement of quality, precision is a measurement of quantity.
From the other thread, I choose to use the term accurate because precision can be incorrect and still a valid definition. The target analogy works here. If I shoot ten rounds low-left, I was in-accurate, but precise. Similarly, if I call a chicken a duck ten times, I am still using the wrong term but at least I am consistent...
