In novometric analysis exact 95% confidence intervals (CIs) are computed for overall model performance and for model endpoints. When CIs overlap for two or more endpoints a model is said to be redundant, meaning that the domain of the outcome cannot be distinguished between overlapping endpoints. This research note provides an illustration of model redundancy.
