This paper presents extensions to the statistical method for model validation proposed by Freese (3), Rennie and Wiant (5), Reynolds (6), Barrales et al (7), and Medina et al (4) when the model has PB in its predictions: 1) maximum anticipated error for the original proposal, 2) hypothesis testing, and maximum anticipated error for the alternative proposal, and 3) the interval of confidence for a quantile of error distribution.

However, in this method, the estimators of extreme quantiles are difficult to estimate accurately because extrapolation beyond past observations is impossible and extreme quantile estimates within sample tend to be very inefficient.
