Attack Roll. When you make an attack (melee, ranged, or spell), your attack roll determines whether you hit or miss. 

Roll + modifiers target’s AC = attack hits

Roll for damage

Your melee or ranged attack roll is: 

1d20  +  your ability modifier  +  your proficiency bonus if you're proficient with the weapon you’re using  +  any other modifier

Some spells require the caster to make an attack roll to determine whether the spell effect hits the intended target.

Your spell attack roll is:

1d20  +  your spellcasting ability modifier  +  your proficiency bonus
