thegrid: Ordinal adequacy results for all catlearn simulations

Description Usage Format Details Author(s) Source References


Records results of all ordinal adequacy tests registered in the catlearn package.




A data frame with the following columns:


Unique identifier number for each entry into the grid. When making a new entry, use the next available integer.


The CIRP (Canonical Independently Replicated Phenomenon) against which a model was tested. This must correspond precisely to the name of a data set in the catlearn package.


A one-word description of the model being tested. Simulations in the same row of The Grid must have precisely the same one-word description. Note, this is not the name of the function used to run the simulation, nor the name of the model implementation function. It is a descriptive term, defined by the modeler.


Indicates the result of the simulation. 1 = passes ordinal adequacy test, 0 = fails ordinal adequacy test, OES = outside explanatory scope (in other words, this is not a result the model was designed to accommodate), 'pending' = the function listed in 'sim' is currently being written or tested.


The name of the catlearn function used to run the simulation.


The name of the catlearn function used to perform the Ordinal Adequacy Test.


The Grid is a means of centrally recording the results of model simulations centrally, within the catlearn package. For further discussion, see Wills et al. (2016).
