Show some class

Below you can find the list of variables in your data (provided we got that right). For classification modeling you must choose one of them as a class variable. Please select the class variable from the list.

What is a class variable

One column of your data is supposed to contain values of the class variable. Class variable (sometimes called group variable) is a discrete variable that indicates that the data row belongs to a certain class or group of interest. Examples of class variables include "Gender", "Performance level" and discretized "Age" (young, middle aged, old). Technically, any discrete (categorical) or discretized continuous variable can be used as a class variable.
