Accuracy

A measurement result is considered accurate if it is judged to be close to the true value. Accuracy is how close to the true value a reading is; precision is a measure of reproducibility – how close together your results are – how much random variation they have; resolution is the smallest change detectable with your equipment . Be careful not to confuse accuracy, precision and resolution.
