 Abstract
The estimation problem of predictive value of a positive test(PVP), which is assessing the accuracy of a screening test is considered. Score methods discussed by Gart and Nam(1988) are proposed for constructing confidence interval for PVP. The simulation studies are conducted in evaluating the proposed methods and existing approximate ones.
