All the classes that I've taken refer to S-Curves as cumulative probability distributions because they are formed by sorting the outcomes and adding up the individual outcome probabilities. The plots show increasing probability outcomes until you reach 100% probability and the associated outcome.

The cumulative probability distribution shows the probability of the outcome being that result or less.

Perhaps you're thinking of something else?

It looks like the terms are used interchangeably.
