We are receiving a lot of questions about relevant analyses in the Analyse-it Method Validation edition to help in evaluating new diagnostic tests in the fight against COVID-19. Below are some quick links that will help, but contact us if you have questions - we are working as normal.

A u-chart is a type of control chart used to monitor the average number of nonconformities per unit when measuring subgroups at regular intervals from a process.
A u-chart is a scaled version of the c-chart representing the average number of nonconformities per unit rather than the number of nonconformities. The same assumptions and recommendations apply.
For data with different subgroup sizes, the control limits vary although the center line is constant. A standardized version of the control chart plots the points in standard deviation units. Such a control chart has a constant center line at 0, and upper and lower control limits of -3 and +3 respectively making it easier to see patterns.
