bartMachine (version 1.2.6)

check_bart_error_assumptions: Check BART Error Assumptions

Description

Diagnostic tools to assess whether the errors of the BART model for regression are normally distributed and homoskedastic, as assumed by the model. This function generates a normal quantile plot of the residuals with a Shapiro-Wilks p-value as well as a residual plot.

Usage

check_bart_error_assumptions(bart_machine, hetero_plot = "yhats")

Arguments

bart_machine

An object of class ``bartMachine''.

hetero_plot

If ``yhats'', the residuals are plotted against the fitted values of the response. If ``ys'', the residuals are plotted against the actual values of the response.

Value

None.
