impCalc

impCalc function is designed to scale variable importance according to MSE and RMSE calculations. It also stores the raw MSE, RMSE, F-measure and developed models if saveModel=TRUE. impCalc is low-level function, it shouldn't be used alone unless user has trained models from caret package stored in RData files.

Usage
impCalc(skel_outfile, xTest, yTest, lk_col, 
          labelsFrame,with.labels,regPred,classPred,saveModel,lvlScale)
Arguments
skel_outfile

Skeleton name of output file

xTest

Input vector of testing data set

yTest

Output vector of testing data set

lk_col

Number of columns of whole data set

labelsFrame

Labels to sort variable importance

with.labels

Pass with.labels argument. It is advised to ALWAYS use labels as in some cases VarImp returns importance in descending values. If you insist turning with.labels FALSE, then make sure data base contains pure data and you read it (read.csv) to data.frame with option header=FALSE.

regPred

Indicating if regression predictions are computed. Logical value [TRUE/FALSE]. If regPred is set TRUE, then classPred should be set FALSE.

classPred

Indicating if classification predictions are computed. Possible values TRUE/FALSE. If classPred is set TRUE, then regPred should be set FALSE. Please be advised that importance is scaled according to F-measure.

saveModel

Logical value [TRUE/FALSE] if trained model should be embedded in final model.

lvlScale

Indicating if use additional scaling. The option is especially usefull when large number of features are getting NA's or are not included in feature ranking. It levels the scores of the features taking the overall number of features. Default value is FALSE. Logical value [TRUE/FALSE].

Details

impCalc function lists RData files in working directory assuming there are only models derived by caret. In a loop function loads models and tries to get the variable importance.
