Analysis can provide the 2x2 table you need to calculate test parameters 
from your data, but it will not calculate sensitivity, specificity, etc. 
There is a way to calculate these with a bit of programming, but you 
cannot then get your ROC curve, etc.

There is enough documentation to get started with Analysis. It behaves 
much like other software and the workflow buttons at the top (or the 
menus) will give you a forms-based approach to working with data. Then 
you can see how the commands are structured.

Start typing a command and hit F1 to get help on that command. Or just 
browse through the Commands help file.
