Score - Statistics

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Score_(statistics)

    Hi,
    I am using software for predictive analytic purpose. The software calculates a score (see wiki link for info) for how accurate the predictions are based on the actual data. I have never heard or have seen this type of number before. I was curious about this number. Basically I want to know if the score that I get back is good or bad.

    If anyone has any additional info about this metric and how I can gauge whether or not my prediction model is good or bad using this I would be very appreciative.
