Interpretation of consensus ranking values needs further explanation
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In the presentation of the consensus ranking, the values might look confusing, especially in the presence of ties. Euclidean is the mean rank in case of ties.method=“average”.

Should we add a paragraph directly after the ranking table in the report?

Event Timeline

report() does not know what type of consensus ranking method had been used.
I added sentence
"Consensus ranking according to mean ranks across tasks if method="euclidean" where in case of ties (equal ranks for multiple algorithms) the average rank is used, i.e. ties.method="average"."
to help for consensus() and would suggest to also add this to the vignette/readme, but not to report. Could someone of you please take care of this?
