Generate a classification benchmark for a specific classifier

You can generate a classification benchmark for a specific classifier. This enables you to look at each classifier and to determine the most effective settings to get the best classification results. You can generate a classification benchmark for a specific classifier by following these steps:

  1. Open the Documents window if it is not already open.
  2. In the Documents window, select your benchmark set.

    If you do not have a benchmark set, convert a custom test set into a benchmark set.

    Your benchmark set expands and its documents are displayed.

  3. On the Process tab, in the Benchmark group, click Classification Benchmark - Classification icon.

    A submenu is displayed showing additional classification benchmark options.

  4. On the Classification submenu, select Classification Benchmark using a Specific Classifier Classification Benchmark (By Classifier) icon.

    The Classification Benchmark window is displayed, a progress bar shows the progress of classification without hierarchical rules. When completed, the results are displayed in a Result Matrix.

  5. Hold the mouse cursor over the cells in the Result Matrix grid for more information.

    Green indicates where the Assigned Class matches the Classification Result. Red indicates where the Assigned Class does not match the Classification Result.

    Tip Clicking a column loads documents from that column into the Selection document set. This enables you to work with those documents to troubleshoot unclassified or incorrectly classified documents.
  6. Optionally, add one or more classification benchmark exceptions and regenerate the classification benchmark.
  7. Optionally, save your classification benchmark for comparison at a later time.
