Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Calculates the logarithmic, quadratic/Brier and spherical based on a fitted mixed model for categorical data.

Usage

1
2
scoring_rules(object, newdata, newdata2 = NULL, max_count = 2000, 
    return_newdata = FALSE)

Arguments

object

an object inheriting from class "MixMod".

newdata

a data.frame based on which to estimate the random effect and calculate predictions. It should contain the response variable.

newdata2

a data.frame based on which to estimate the random effect and calculate predictions. It should contain the response variable.

max_count

numeric scalar denoting the maximum count up to which to calculate probabilities; this is relevant for count response data.

return_newdata

logical; if TRUE the values of the scoring rules are ruturned as extra columns of the newdata or newdata2 data.frame.

Value

A data.frame with (extra) columns the values of the logarithmic, quadratic and spherical scoring rules calculated based on the fitted model and the observed responses in newdata or newdata2.
