The Algorithm Testing System (ATS) is a software system which supports the Algorithm Testing & Evaluation Program: for Coordinate Measuring Systems (ATEP-CMS). ATEP-CMS is a NIST special test service for evaluating the performance of CMS geometric fitting software. ATEP-CMS uses the ATS to analyze such software. The ATS typically performs such an analysis by generating data sets, applying its own fitting routines to fit geometries onto the datasets, and comparing its own fit results to the fit results of the software under test for the same data. The ATS provides the above capabilities along with a graphical user interface, full VO capabilities, and extensive on-line help. This report provides a user''s guide for the ATS. It introduces the overall design and functionally of the ATS and guides the user through a number of hands-on tutorials.
