Classification Benchmark window

This window displays the results of a classification benchmark.

Depending on whether you generate a classification benchmark for all project classification settings or an individual classifier, the available options may differ.

Regardless of the document set selected, the classification benchmark results are displayed in a Result Matrix grid. Each class in your project is displayed, and the Assigned Class is compared to the classification benchmark result. Green results are successful classifications, red results mean that there are problems with a class, and yellow results indicate unclassified documents. The alignment in the grid indicates the Assigned Class, so the successful results always are displayed in the middle. Any other results are displayed off-center.

The following toolbar options are available:
