An interactive menu-driven BASIC program calculates the cutting score or scores for classifying cases into two groups to maximize classification utility. The user can specify base rates, means, and variances on the test score distributions, as well as the utility for each possible decision outcome. An interactive feature facilitates sensitivity analyses.
