class sklearn.base.ClassifierMixin[source]#

Mixin class for all classifiers in scikit-learn.

This mixin defines the following functionality:

  • _estimator_type class attribute defaulting to "classifier";

  • score method that default to accuracy_score.

  • enforce that fit requires y to be passed through the requires_y tag.

score(X, y, sample_weight=None)[source]#

Return the mean accuracy on the given test data and labels.

In multi-label classification, this is the subset accuracy which is a harsh metric since you require for each sample that each label set be correctly predicted.

Xarray-like of shape (n_samples, n_features)

Test samples.

yarray-like of shape (n_samples,) or (n_samples, n_outputs)

True labels for X.

sample_weightarray-like of shape (n_samples,), default=None

Sample weights.


Mean accuracy of self.predict(X) w.r.t. y.
