Description

Generates data that can be used to plot a critical differences plot. Computes the critical differences according to either the "Bonferroni-Dunn" test or the "Nemenyi" test.
"Bonferroni-Dunn" usually yields higher power as it does not compare all algorithms to each other, but all algorithms to a baseline instead.
Learners are drawn on the y-axis according to their average rank.
For test = "nemenyi" a bar is drawn, connecting all groups of not significantly different learners.
For test = "bd" an interval is drawn arround the algorithm selected as baseline. All learners within this interval are not signifcantly different from the baseline.
Calculation:

CD = q_alpha sqrt(k(k+1)/(6N))


Where q_α is based on the studentized range statistic. See references for details.

Usage

1
2
generateCritDifferencesData(bmr, measure = NULL, p.value = 0.05,
  baseline = NULL, test = "bd")

Arguments

bmr

[BenchmarkResult]
Benchmark result.

measure

[Measure]
Performance measure. Default is the first measure used in the benchmark experiment.

p.value

[numeric(1)]
P-value for the critical difference. Default: 0.05

baseline

[character(1)]: [learner.id]
Select a learner.id as baseline for the test = "bd" ("Bonferroni-Dunn") critical differences diagram.The critical difference Interval will then be positioned arround this learner. Defaults to best performing algorithm.
For test = "nemenyi", no baseline is needed as it performs all pairwise comparisons.

test

[character(1)]
Test for which the critical differences are computed.
“bd” for the Bonferroni-Dunn Test, which is comparing all classifiers to a baseline, thus performing a comparison of one classifier to all others.
Algorithms not connected by a single line are statistically different. then the baseline.
“nemenyi” for the posthoc.friedman.nemenyi.test which is comparing all classifiers to each other. The null hypothesis that there is a difference between the classifiers can not be rejected for all classifiers that have a single grey bar connecting them.

Value

[critDifferencesData]. List containing:

data

[data.frame] containing the info for the descriptive part of the plot

friedman.nemenyi.test

[list] of class pairwise.htest
contains the calculated posthoc.friedman.nemenyi.test

cd.info

[list] containing info on the critical difference and its positioning

baseline

baseline chosen for plotting

p.value

p.value used for the posthoc.friedman.nemenyi.test and for computation of the critical difference
