- QUOTE: Given a classifier and an instance, there are four possible outcomes. If the instance is positive and it is classified as positive, it is counted as a true positive; if it is classified as negative, it is counted as a false negative. If the instance is negative and it is classified as negative, it is counted as a true negative; if it is classified as positive, it is counted as a false positive. Given a classifier and a set of instances (the test set), a two-by-two confusion matrix (also called a contingency table) can be constructed representing the dispositions of the set of instances.
